'Umbrian Hillside', (circa 1940s - 1950s), oil on board. Quaglia was born in Umbria and his home, a region of untouched landscapes, is the subject of many of his beautifully colourful paintings. At the heart of the boot, Umbria is the only Italian region with no coastline. Quaglia's works encompassed so many stunning land, sea and cityscapes throughout Italy. His Roman city subjects capture both famous landmarks and little known quarters. All of his paintings share the earthy warmth of Italy's natural habitat. Find vibrant yellows, deep oranges, rich greens with skylines of pink and magenta to warm your heart and your home. In very good vintage condition. Newly framed with linen slip, signed: 'Quaglia' in lower right hand corner. A short video clip of this work can be provided upon request.
About the Artist: Carlo Quaglia (1903 - 1970) was born in Terni, Italy where he studied classical music in the Briccialdi Institute. Later he studied economics and business at the Modena Academy until the outbreak of WWII. Early in the war he was taken prisoner by the English and sent as a POW to Camp 27 near the Himalayas. Five years a prisoner, he studied art until his return to Italy where his talent gained immediate attention. Over the years Quaglia has become very collectible as one of the prominent artists of the Rome School. Exhibitions of his works have been held in Rome, Milan, Turin, Genoa, Livorno, Paris, Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut, USA and Montréal, Canada. He also wrote an opera which was declared part of the Italian National Institute's heritage files.
