Paul and Melita, I am curious as to a rough price range on a landscape painting?
I live in the United States and go on trips every summer with a friend if mine. This year we are going to be spending it traveling Italy. Every trip I love to friend a nice piece of art as a memory of the trip to bring home. However I am young and unexperienced about shipping international. After reading so many amazing reviews on your studio i am very excited to try to visit during our trip in May. But sadly as I said, I am young, and while planning to buy as nice of a painting as I can on the trip. I do not have all money I would love to spend on a painting.
So I was curious what one roughly ran for in your studio? If there us a general range that would be amazing to know. Thank you so much for taking to time to read this and respond.
Hello from Melita (Paolo’s American wife from Chicago).
Thank you so much for contacting us and for your question about our prices for Paolo’s oil paintings. In general, I would say the range is from 800 euro (approx. $1000) for a small a scene (10 x 12 in.) up to 2400 euro (approx. $3000) for a large scene (24 x 48 in.). Our prices include the frames (hand-treated from Florence), taxes/fees and international shipping.
We also sell one limited-edition print that is a scene of Varenna. We do not market this on our website and offer it more as a courtesy for our walk-in clients to the gallery. It is a reproduction of an original oil painting that Paolo embellishes with oils and it is sold “unstretched” and “unframed” and shipped rolled in a tube. The print cost is 250 euro + 25 euro (for shipping) for a total of 275 euro (approx. $340 US). If you provide me with an email, I can always send you an image of the current scene we have available.
No matter what, I hope that you and your friend are able to make it to Varenna in May. It is a most delightful and charming village (especially at that time of year) and our gallery is located just off the main St. Giorgio church piazza. We welcome visitors and are generally open in the afternoon and evenings (and mornings by appointment). But if we know when you’re coming, we’ll be sure to be there!
Let me know if you have any other questions for us and “Buon Viaggio”.
