'Portraits of Timeless Expressions No. 8', oil on canvas mounted on board, by Florentine School (circa 1980s-90s). This gallery has acquired a number of paintings through an intermediary of an ageing art professor from the Istituto di Arte di Porta Romana, Florence, Italy. The professor released works of artists whom he mentored over the years. We are unsure who painted the series we acquired as many are just signed, 'Giacomo', or, left completely unsigned, yet they are clearly by the same artist. They are in good overall condition and have been newly framed with a French-style linen slip. Please enjoy the many photos accompanying this listing. Upon request a video will be provided. 

About the Istituto d'Arte di Porta Romana: On 1 November 1924, in the presence of King Vittorio Emanuele III and Queen Elena of Savoy, the new headquarters of the Royal Institute of Art of Porta Romana were inaugurated. The school has served as a valuable training venue for the aristocracy and artisan elite comprised of teachers, heads of schools of art, and renown artists. It has also served as a teaching model and the first stage in the development of many Italian artists of the twentieth century. Many artists, decorators, architects and designers, including those of fashion and costumes, who studied and taught in the old School of Decorative Arts in Santa Croce, or, in later years, the State Art Institute of Porta Romana, include the designer Enrico Coveri, the director Franco Zeffirelli, as well as the costume designers Anna Anni and Gabriella Pescucci, Oscar winners in 1994 for the film The Age of Innocence (ref: Florence Inferno). The Institute now also contains a rich library consisting of about 15,000 volumes and training courses for design, graphics, fashion, jewellery, furniture, etc.
