Santa Trinita Bridge

An Original Oil Painting by Matthew Bates

Oil on Canvas – 110cm x45cm – ©2002, Matthew Bates, All Rights Reserved

1970, Washington, DC

I was born into an artistic family, in a place for politics. I got out soon after my 18th birthday and moved to California, there a teacher sent me on a quest to Florence, Italy, where I fell in love with all things Italian. That was in 1990, I have been here ever since.

I paint in the style of Magic Realism, my own style, based on realistic subjects, where I tweak the dimensions to add time and space, accentuating colors and details.

    Must admit, having seen the other version first, this one clicks straight away, with its colours, obvious history and style.

    Wow, so much work in this, really nice!

  • Thanks, these cityscapes are lots of work, but the results make the effort worth it!
