Remo Mario Trentini (1915-1999) is a world renowned painter, his painting styles including his famous Reverse Glass, abstract impressionism, surrealism, and watercolors.
After 13 years of experimentation of painting on glass, Professor Trentini developed a method of mixing colors and bases which would adhere to glass. A process requiring considerable skill and to this day he is considered as the only modern artist to perfect this technique with oil colors. Painting on the reverse of glass was a lost art which Trentini revived in a manner that was uniquely his.
The result is a piece that displays a unique sense of depth and shadow.
This unique painting style is only equaled by the rare opportunity to own one of only a few of the reverse oil on glass works that still exist in collections such as the Vatican Museum, the Senate in Ottawa, and many private collections including several pieces held by billionaire Mark Cuban. This piece has an especially unique Provenance. It was presented as a gift to Queen Elizabeth during her silver jubilee visit to Canada, in 1976. A copy of the thank you note sent to Trentini is included as Provenance. Legacy Art has recently confirmed the validity of the letter with the office of the Secretary of Queen Elizabeth.
The high quality of the artwork, the remarkable condition that it is in, and the unique provenance make this piece a wonderful conversation piece as part of any collection. It is a piece of historical art that cannot be replaced.
Shipping of this piece must be discussed to avoid any possibility of damage.
