The expressionist oil painting with lots of color and light captures Laguna Beach with it hills and beautiful coastline. Sassone uses a heavy impasto to create the ephemeral moment. Artist signature in the upper right –hand corner. Age: 1980’s – Size: 22” x 28” The expressionist paintings of Marco Sassone have a distinguished lineage: in his early twenties he studied with Silvio Loffredo, a professor at the Accademia in Florence who had been the pupil of the great expressionist artist Oskar Kokoschka. Influenced by these artists, Sassone relies on a thick application of paint, which acts as the conduit for his remarkably poignant treatment of people and landscape. The artist, now living in Toronto, moved from Italy to California in 1967; there he developed a career rich in achievements and awards, including being knighted into the Order of Merit of the Italian Republic in 1982.
