Lucio Sollazzi was born in Pavia, Italy, in 1925 and studied with the artist Borgognoni, attending Milans Academia di Brera. He comes from a cultured Italian family. His father combines the roles of businessman, actor and poet, his brother is a jurist and inspired poet and his sister is a respected professor of Italian literature.
Sollazzi devoted his early years to technical studies, business activities, sports and his major hobby, painting. His first works were exhibited in his own orthopaedic supply shops, but received no response at all. He decided that a change of location might be the key, and opened his own gallery - a move which was to prove very profitable. His work attained amazing popularity, so much so that Sollazzi relinquished his business interests to become a professional painter.
Sollazzi's painting follows varied influences, from the great British Romantics to the seventeenth-century Dutch landscape painters, and from Lombard Romanticism to the Venetian landscapists. Lucio Sollazzi is now based in Monte Carlo, and the Mediterranean and Venetian coastlines provide him with much of the inspiration for his contemporary work. Sollazzi calls himself an optimistic painter and always wants his paintings to reflect his own happiness.
Sollazzi now travels constantly, maintaining a studio in Spain as well as his bases in Italy and Monte Carlo. His work is held in the collections of patrons around the world.

We partner with the world's top museums and galleries to bring you exclusive prints of the highest quality. Our teams of designers ensure the colours are accurate, papers are well suited and the best frames are suggested.
In the printing room, artworks are printed on state-of-the-art machines with a team of technicians checking colour and quality every step of the way.
After being cut down to size, our team carefully finish any stray edges, check measurements and prepare the prints for mounting and framing.
We have a team of master framers who work with high-quality, responsibly-sourced wood to create our vast range of framing combinations - each frame is bespoke and made to order for every print.
Our selection of hand-finished frames are painted or stained by hand in a variety of colours, and finished with a layer of wax - the end result is a uniquely crafted, beautiful frame that is made to last.
In this workshop everything comes together - the print, the frame and the glass - in a seamless and stream-lined process.
The artwork is carefully mounted in preparation for framing.
Once mounted, the print is ready to be covered by glass or perspex - a delicate procedure but expertly done with not a fingerprint in sight.
After a final, thorough check, the framed print is ready to be carefully packaged up and shipped to the customer.
For those who order their art as canvas prints, the same amount of attention and care goes into the process. Here, the print is being transferred to a wooden frame.
As with the framed prints, our canvases are all hand-finished in the workshop - a labour of love from start to finish.
