GIOVANNI SIRTOLI is a painter of Lombardy, a region in the north of Italy. He was born in 1924, and is still living and working. He took his Diploma at the end of the forties at the Accademia Carrara of Bergamo, one of the most important Italian artistic academies. His master was Achille Funi (1890-1972).|
His painting draws inspiration from the great masters of the past, from the reminiscences of the ancient frescoes in the Pompei style, rich with red in a thousand variations, to those of Giotto, and to Matisse's ethereal figures. The themes of his works are figures of women, bathers, acrobats, musicians, maternity, landscapes.
He has been organizing several personal exhibitions since 1966 and has exhibited his works and taken part in the most important exhibitions both in Italy and abroad (Milan, Venice, Bari, Pompei, Monaco, and Amsterdam).
