Artist Spotlight: Luigi Lucioni

Luigi Lucioni was born in Malnate, Italy, approximately 30 miles north of Milan, Italy. Lucioni quickly became one of America's well-known landscape painters, whose work has been noted for its heightened realism and photographic attention to detail. Lucioni's attention to detail can also be traced to his early work as an etcher in 1922, when he mastered that technique which stresses sharp linear precision, a skill instrumental in developing his precise style of painting and etching.
