Leone Minassian

He was born in Constantinople May 8, 1905 and died in Venice in 1978. As a result of racial persecution in Italy, he first moved to Naples and then finally to Venice. His artistic education began with Pio Semeghini and gradually his association with the most talented artists and critics of his time, gave him a rich knowledge of the environment. The forms of his still lifes, colorful and plastic, slowly slowly get up and see it vibrate in “his” heaven.
