Allen Capriotti is an American realist with a modern vision. His paintings are well within the tradition of American realism as defined by artists such as Thomas Eakins and Rembrandt Peale. Capriotti looks at America - its people, landscapes, and architecture – and describes the beauty he finds in everyday life. His paintings celebrate the underlying nature of the people he meets and their significance in shaping the world around them. Capriotti sees the importance of the smallest details in the overall picture and fills his work with the honest nature of people.
Capriotti learned his traditional use of painting materials and technique from his twenty years as a paintings conservator for Albert Michaels Conservation, Harrisburg - Pennsylvania, and Evergreen Painting Studios, New York – New York. He learned the importance of properly preparing a painting from the support to the subsequent sizing, ground, grisaille, under-painting, and many layers of thin color glazes.
