The Beautiful Paintings of Pino Daeni

 

I can’t believe I’ve only just discovered the luscious, romantic paintings of Italian-American, Pino Daeni! These works of art are so gorgeous, and full of soft, delicate and beautiful images of youthful women and children against natural backdrops or homely surroundings. If you love the work of the impressionists, you’ll really appreciate these exquisite paintings.

The sensuous women Pino usually paints on beaches and in boudoirs appear confident and beautiful. They often seem to be daydreaming, perhaps thinking of absent lovers.

His works are painted with oils on linen. The brushwork is loose but extremely accurate. His subjects are commonly softly lit with green shadows and pastel highlights.

After visiting the city, Pino believed New York offered better opportunities for artists than his native Italy. So, in 1978 he brought his wife and two children with him to America to help fulfill his dreams.

However, he spent much of these years making book covers for romantic authors such as Danielle Steel. He got tired of the work and wished to return to his impressionist roots.
