About the Artist
Claudio Giulianelli was born in Rome on September 23rd, 1956. He attended a college of chemical sciences. During his studies he felt a growing interest in the arts. His passion grew stronger and that led him to study art history in depth and various painting techniques. He focused his research on classical art guided by a thorough observation of the Old Masters' paintings.
Books about Caravaggio and Flemish painters became his constant companions. Claudio sharpened his style after meeting with well-known painters such as Delfo Previtali and Guido Razzi.
Through the years he travelled around Europe to see the Old Masters' works up close. The emotions he felt in the presence of these masterpieces inspired his future works. In 1992 he moved to Corchiano, a very small town of etruscan origin located near Rome, where he currently lives and works.
Like Caravaggio, contemporary Italian artist Claudio Giulianelli is a master of chiaroscuro to bring his figurative portraits to life. Claudio is a passionate and serious student of the Old Masters. Claudio emulates many of the ancient techniques into his own stunning classical compositions. Claudio has exhibited widely in Italy and many of his oil paintings hand in the private collections of the rich and famous across the world.
