About the Book
LISA PALOMBO, American Impressionist is a vibrant survey of recent works by renowned artist Lisa Palombo. A painter whose training began at RISD and has continued under the tutelage of some of the foremost Impressionists working today, she is considered a master of color and the natural form.
“Lisa Palombo's oils are bold floral motifs and Impressionistic landscape works, each rich in color, line and texture. Her color combinations are unexpected, and force the viewer to pause and look deeper into the painting. Although she employs strong brush strokes she's still able to convey detail and her sense of line expresses motion. There is a vitality in each of her works that mirrors the life of her subjects.”
Contemporary American Impressionist Lisa Palombo began her formal art education at the age of nine, spending her summers at the acclaimed Rhode Island School of Design (RISD). She later graduated from RISD with honors. She did post-graduate studies in Fine Art at the European Honors Program in Rome, Italy. In a short two decades she has produced landscapes, still lifes and florals, and honed a style that is un-mistakable in its expressive brushwork and fearless use of color. Her works are found in private and corporate collections; on more than 40 bookcovers – including several New York Times bestsellers. She is listed in the National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington, D.C., and the Marquis Who’s Who in American Art and included in the books, The Best of Oil Painting, Exploring Color, and The Best of American Oil Artists (Vol. II).
