Female figures in contemporary art: the Gioconde by Silvano Sartori

Some female figures in contemporary art like the Gioconde by Silvano Sartori. They are a tribute to Leonardo da Vinci 500 years after his birth. In particular, they pay homage to one of his most famous works: the painting of the Mona Lisa. It has always inspired artists, poets and writers. Her smile, so mysterious and indecipherable, expresses the movements of the soul of a human being. In other words, something that we all feel, beyond every era and geographical border.

Born in 1955, he graduated in painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice. From his first steps as an artist, his scrupulous attention to reality, technique and knowledge of the art world are highlighted. Some of his works belong to Italian collections and churches, others are located abroad.

The female world of Salvatore Grillo

Other female figures in contemporary art are Grillo’s sculptures. They are a tribute to the essence of their beauty and harmony. He was born in Ponte della Priula in 1947. At the end of the 1950s he inherited a forge and a hammer. With them he immediately put himself to the test. Grillo was still very young when he created his first artistic objects in wrought iron. He later tried his hand at using clay and the art of sculpture, in particular the female figure.

He began to exhibit in the province of Treviso. Between the 1980s and 1990s, a succession of personal and collective exhibitions took him beyond the Venetian borders, as far as China, the USA and the Russia. Some of his works are part of permanent collections in Venice, Milan, Rome, Moscow, St. Petersburg and Miami.
