AUTENTIQUA: AUTHENTIC FLORENTINE PAINTINGS
Always authentic: Autentiqua's paintings are exclusive artworks made on canvas, on wood, or on antique fragments, whose main feature is attention to detail, down to the smallest components.
EXCLUSIVE ARTWORKS ON WOOD OR CANVAS, WITH OR WITHOUT STRUCTURAL OR DECORATIVE FRAME
Autentiqua’s paintings are made with ancient traditional lean tempera techniques, with plaster, clay, pigments, and vegetable glues on natural canvas. A long process carried out exclusively by hand enriches these pieces with the flavor of the past and the charm of wear, with portions of bare canvas that emerge from the layers of color to provide the work with the unique magic of time.
“Works of art where authentically antique materials blend with an authentically new subject.”
It is a harmony that reveals an incredible wealth of details that emerge from the color and the material, enriching the painting with the charm and mystery of a precious and timeless work.
Even the most careless eye cannot avoid noticing the compositional harmony of Autentiqua’s works. This harmony is what first catches the eye, but then a more careful analysis reveals an incredible wealth of details and small features inspired by the character of a particular style or an art movement of the past.
Autentiqua’s artworks are unique pieces that feel like ancient paintings.
They are not mere copies of past subjects: each work is a unique and original creation, which comes to life as a result of careful philological research.
Appreciated by interior decorators, collectors, antique dealers, architects and art lovers, as well as by tourists and visitors looking for a truly unique and precious travel memory, the artworks that are created in the Autentiqua atelier in the heart of the Florentine Oltrarno quarter feed on the immense artistic heritage that goes from the Renaissance to the present day, touching on the numerous artistic styles that have been typical of Florence, Tuscany and other regions of Italy over the centuries
