Welcome to a new series of features on art inspired by Italy.
Art is everywhere in Italy. It gushes from virtually every corner, but not all of it is obvious. Sometimes it takes a photographer’s or an artist’s eye to identify and transform aspects of Italy into art. Photographers such as Allen Beatty strive to capture and preserve Italy’s natural art.
On top of everything else this incredible country has to offer, Italy’s doorways are often natural works of art, especially at certain times of the year.
Here’s Allen Beatty’s photograph of one such colorful doorway in the area of Dolceacqua which I think you might like:
You can, of course, visit Italy and see such sights for yourself, but if, for any reason, you are unable to make it, then why not hang an image if Italy in your home, or office? Then again, you could order a framed print – a good frame really can enhance photographs – and gift it to an Italy loving friend or loved one. And, of course, viewing lots of images of Italy may even encourage you to visit. If you do, mission accomplished!
Over the next few weeks and months, Italy Chronicles will be featuring the Italy inspired art work of photographers and artists from the website Fine Art America. Acquire the work of the artists and a little corner of Italy will be yours. In addition, you’ll also be encouraging artists to keep producing art. A win-win situation for all concerned.
Disclosure: Italy Chronicles receives nothing from Fine Art America sales.
