Biography 

 

Griffith Art Gallery is pleased to represent Raimondo Roberti who was born on May 31, 1947 in Naples, Italy. Members of his family, who were high military officers of the Royal Fleet, strongly influenced Roberti and his lifelong attraction to all things pertaining to the sea. His family’s isolated villa was very near the grounds of G. Gigante. Gigante was one of the foremost exponents of Neopolitan classical painting, a painting style known as the School of Posillipo, an artistic style that Roberti would study later in life.

Because of his interests in American culture, Roberti moved to the United States to immerse himself in the American Experience while pursuing his career as an artist. His stay in America was short lived because of his love for his native land, Italy.
Roberti’s paintings reflect the traditions of Italian art. Roberti is best known for his port scenes, the Italian coastline, and his classic scenes of Venice Italy. Roberti is able to offer the world exacting impressions of the vibrant life of a port city or the quiet elegance, romanticism and rugged terrain that embraces the Mediterranean.

An art movement founded in France in the last third of the 19th century. Impressionist artists sought to break up light into its component colors and render its ephemeral play on various objects. The artist's vision was intensely centered on light and the ways it transforms the visible world. This style of painting is characterized by short brush strokes of bright colors used to recreate visual impressions of the subject and to capture the light, climate and atmosphere of the subject at a specific moment in time. The chosen colors represent light which is broken down into its spectrum components and recombined by the eyes into another color when viewed at a distance (an optical mixture). The term was first used in 1874 by a journalist ridiculing a landscape by Monet called Impression - Sunrise.
