Pietro Annigoni's Legacy

Pietro Annigoni, Self portrait
Last May I had the honour to participate in the Angel Art Academy Exhibition in Florence. Angel Art Academy holds their students' and alumni exhibitions annually which are always of consistently high quality, however this year it was a particularly important event because the show was dedicated to the centenary of Pietro Annigoni, one of the most prominent modern realist painters of the last century.

The exhibition turned out to be an amazing event which combined in itself everything one can expect an art show to be: high quality of artwork, unbelievable venue (located in Bardini Gardens on top of the hill from here one can get the full view of Florence), excellent programme, catering service, etc. My husband and I were very excited to be there on the opening night and to share the joy and pride of other students in their success.
