Salvaggio, José

Technique : Oil

Born in Sicily in 1953, Jose Salvaggio moved to France as a child and now resides in the Haute-Marne.

As an accomplished landscape artist, Jose Salvaggio attended both the School of Paris where he studied with well known painter Paul Andebourhr, and the School of Emilie Simon, also in France, where he studied with Claude Marin. Through a judicious choice of tones and delicate brushstrokes, Salvaggio orchestrates light in such a way that his work radiates warmth and sensitivity. Salvaggio was influenced by impressionist masters Claude Monet and Alfred Sisley.
