Pino Daeni

March 31, 2013 § 1 Comment

Born in Bari in 1939, Pino Dangelico Daeni has painted over 3,000 books covers, magazine illustrations, and movie posters.  His work usually features graceful women, pained with loose brushstrokes reminiscent of the Impressionist period.

While most of the subject matter is similar (women waiting, in thought, for lovers or husbands), I am intrigued by each of these illustrations.  I love the smoothness of the figure, as well as the lost edges between foreground and background.  As well as the bold brushstrokes and complimentary colors that give each painting the depth that is possesses.
