Littorio del Signore

Italian-Canadian artist, Littorio del Signore was born October 18, 1938 in Sulmona, Italy where he developed his artistic career before moving to Canada in 1976. He first picked up a paint brush at the age of twelve and studied under an instructor by the name of P. del Beato in Sulmona.

When Littorio was 20 years old, he moved to France and studied modern painting at the École des Beaux Arts d’Annecy under the tutelage of J.P. Serralongue. He received his diploma from the school with very high distinction. During his stay in France, he participated in exhibitions throughout Paris, Deauville, Annemasse, and in London, England.

Littorio returned to Italy in 1969 and spent his time painting. His style shows his passion for painting scenes of everyday life in cities he has visited. When he moved with his family to Montréal, Québec in 1978 he fell in love instantly with the Canadian culture and the city of Montréal. His landscapes and cityscapes explore dramatic and sensual light effects on the subjects he paints. Some of his subjects may include: children playing hockey, young woman amongst nature, and impressionistic depictions of Old Montréal.
