He has sold many painting during the period of 1960 -1970 and many galleries around the world start exhibiting his paintings. The artist was invited to do various projects such as monumental 40 meter long frescos for the University of Corte (Corsica) and a mural decoration on enamelled iron a 130 meters length in Marseilles Subways. Jean-Claude Quilici's work has its own strength and uniqueness to his ability to capture natural light to his canvas. More significantly, his work has more to modern expressionism, which is embodied and revealed in each of his pieces. Having retained the lessons of the landscape Masters of southern France, Jean-Claude Quilici is unquestionably the best representative of provincial expressionism today. The forceful construction of his architecture intensely reflecting his subject, offers nevertheless a momentary vision, which the artist seizes just at the right moment through the interplay of shadows and his palette, with a gradation of colours subtly distributed in his landscape.
