Gallery Edarcom Europa in Rome presents Sorpreso in flagranza di sogni (Surprised in the Act of Dreams), a solo exhibition by Mario Ferrante and curated by Francesco Ciaffi.
More than 30 works have been selected for the exhibition and examine Ferrante’s stylistic evolution over the last twenty years. Observers will notice a progression from figurative realism to abstract. The artist notes that the use of palette knives are the driving force of his dynamic and emotionally charged compositions.
Additionally, Ferrante will present his book Diario di un ritrattista (Diary of a Portrait Painter) on Thursday, December 2nd at Apollo Hall of Castel Sant’Angelo.

Love the rich color and lively paint/brushwork
Did he paint several works of the same composition? I’ve seen several pieces of the exact same oil on canvas and wondered how many of each were done.
