About the author
Striving to establish her art career in oil painting, Fran Di Giacomo found herself most excited by the methods and concepts of the Dutch masters. “I focused on seeking out living masters to study with. Perfecting the drama of light, shadow, and mystery has been a constant theme. Fad and fashion will ebb and flow, but classical realism is endless and enduring.” Today her portraiture is renowned, and her still life paintings are in great demand for their lush colors and dramatic lighting. Her fine art originals are represented by galleries in several states, and her artworks have sold millions of prints. In today’s fast-paced world, our senses are constantly assaulted by the noisy, the vulgar, the grotesque, the avant-garde. When you behold a Di Giacomo painting, you return to the world of quiet elegance.
