Trees and Mountains BY LUIGI LUCIONI
THE BEST INTRODUCTION to an understanding of Lucioni’s art is his own statement of his aims:
“I admire fantasy in art, but realizing that it is not in my make-up I try
more and more to create reality with the simplest means and with all essential detail.
But I feel that all this should be part of a design, which I believe every canvas must primarily possess.

” Trees and Mountains, an excellent illustration of this point of view, exemplifies, too,
the lengths to which he carries his almost photographic realism.
The scene is the Vermont highland area he never tires of painting,
with its splendid mountains, noble trees, straggling roads, and hidden farms.
Luciani was born in Malnate, Italy, on November 4, rgoo.
After his family came to America, he entered the night art classes at Cooper Union.
He remained there four years, and an equal period at the National Academy of Design.
His career has been brilliant, and it is difficult to say whether his landscapes are
the most prized of his work, for his still lifes and portraits seem equally esteemed.
He has received various awards, and is well represented both in public and private collections throughout the country.
