Typical Lido Bettarini's artwork, with a naval subject; indeed the paining is about a harbour, where some little boats are floating on the sea surface. The light is soft because of the moon, which appears pale on the top of the artwork.
Oil painting signed in original and archived by the artist. The gallery provides the certificate of authenticity.
Lido Bettarini was born in Florence in the 1927. He's an Italian Artist, who now lives and works in Cannes, in the South of France, where he continues to paint. The influence of a city like Florence brought him to follow an artistic career. He attended the Fine Arts Academy of Florence (Accademia di Belle Arti) and studied first with the professor Settala and then with the painter Rosai.
Bettarini is one of the most important Italian artists, very required and appreciated in the artistic scene of Italy and Europe; he’s had also the honour to work for the pope John Paul II, painting for him a beautiful portrait now conserved in the Vaticano. Beyond his activity as a painter, Bettarini has writen also different books, both novels and essays.
Many of his artworks are part of important collections and are conserved in museums like Vatican Museum, Prado Museum of Madrid, Museum of Modern Art of Montecatini. The most peculiar thing that characterizes the great and vast works of Bettarini are his landscape. The inspiration for these canvases is taken obviously from the beautiful and colourful region of Tuscany, and from the dreamy atmospheres of the Mediterranean Sea. The colours and the vibrant beauty, rustic and dreamy at the same time, of the countryside near Florence is described by Bettarini in a way that only a Tuscan artist can do. Another important theme in Bettarini’s paintings is the “White Sails”, boats that sail home guided only by the moon light. A magic atmosphere, surrounding the port and the boats, is given by the use of the shades of tones, blues, violets and the white, and suspends the time and the space in a condition that seems unreal even if everything we see is “realistic”.

if you LIVE IN EU
If you live in Europe (CEE) the price we show you already includes taxes. The works are taxed either with VAT exposed (22%) or VAT with the margin, if you are a private person you do not change anything, if you are a company: in In the first case, you will recover the VAT, in the second, no. When you put the works in the cart you will be separated from the vat exposed.
If you DON'T LIVE IN EU and you want an EXTRA EU shipping
Many works (not all) have an exposed VAT of 22% included in the price, this vat will be spun off! Obviously you will pay the VAT to your destination country, if due. For example if you live in Switzerland you save 22% but you will have to pay 7.7% to your customs, if you live in Hong Kong you will save 22% and you will not have to pay anything to your customs (lucky you).
