Ettore de Conciliis is one of Italy’s most esteemed and internationally-renowned contemporary artists. He has developed great skill in a wide range of media, including oil painting, murals, sculpture and land art monuments.
For the past 30 years, de Conciliis has focused in particular on landscapes. His inspiration has come mainly from the Tiber River Valley north of Rome.
De Conciliis has been honored with personal exhibitions in some of the most important museums of art throughout Italy, including the Museum of Rome, Palazzo Braschi, the National Museum of Castel Sant’Angelo, and the Museum of San Salvatore in Lauro, all near Rome; the Reggia di Caserta near Naples; Palazzo Sant’Elia in Palermo; and the Fortezza Spagnola in L’Aquila.
In 2009 de Conciliis had a personal retrospective exhibition at the Academy of Fine Arts Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia. He has also had many personal exhibitions in distinguished art galleries in Rome and Milan, as well as in New York, Los Angeles, and Washington, DC. His paintings are in major collections worldwide.
To appreciate nature through art is to become more conscious of who we are. It is a way of connecting with reality. Otherwise, we become alienated from ourselves and from the world.
