Orfeo Tamburi

A native from Marche by birth but a Parisian at heart, Orfeo Tamburi was trained at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome, and in fact shares some elements of that artistic trend later called the Roman School. Although he often spent time in the French capital, he developed an intense painting that has one of the essential sources in the landscape. Tamburi paints using warm colors first, then progressively cools down, finally composing a long series of Parisian views, in which the houses of the big city are transformed into wings and curtains, while the description varies between white walls, open windows and vertical roofs. The work presented here is the vision of a park, resolved with evident freedom and happiness of a stroke, between intertwined trees and soaring street lamps. Like the almost contemporary De Pisis, Tamburi draws from the fundamental lesson of the Impressionists the desire for synthesis and rapidity in drafting, so as to catch every particular quiver of the life that flows before his eyes.
