from ArtsLife - Silvia Eleonora Salvadori: journey into the ancient Tuscan art workshop
Silvia Eleonora Salvadori's works mix medieval art, Renaissance and Gothic influence.
Arezzo, a city with medieval charm, has one of the few shops in Italy, if not the only one and with an exquisite seventeenth-century style, where the ancient pictorial techniques handed down to us by Cennino Cennini and Giorgio Vasari are used. We are talking about the Bottega d’Arte Toscana, by the teacher and artist Silvia Eleonora Salvadori whose works draw inspiration not only from Medieval art, but also from Gothic and early Renaissance art in Florence and Siena. Her sacred and profane characters, architecture and landscapes are not only faithfully reproduced on commission, but also revisited with an accuracy and delicacy that clearly show the skills of the artist, whose style recalls that of Simone Martini and Duccio di Buoninsegna.
Her works are like fairytale atmospheres that come to life and project us into that ancient and distant world in contact with saints, ladies and knights. The care she pays on her works is such that, by gently touching them, it is possible to feel the consistency of what they represent, instead of simple, albeit meticulous brush strokes.
