Add To Cart

Orlando Tisato (1926-2010) is an artist who is not widely known in America.  His roots are entirely Italian.

Here is a translation of a biographical statement originally written in Italian:

Here is a link to a recently published book on the artist that is presently available only in Italian:

There are many videos on the web about this artist, but they too are generally in Italian.  

Here is a link to a youtube video without much dialogue:

It provides a peek into the mind of the artist as an elderly man.  It is a modest film but it is worth watching if you love art and simple beauty.

This next video explores some of Tisato’s late works with musical accompaniment:

There is no dialogue at all.

This last video without any voiceover is a veritable feast for the eyes:
