Antonello L´Abbate
Born in Rome in 1943, his family moved to Brazil in 1953.

In 1969, he traveled to Milan to attend the "Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera" directed by Domenico Cantatore. In 1971 he studied in New York where he joined the "Art Students League" studying various painting techniques and in particular the art of engraving, under the guidance of Robert Brackman and Roberto Delamonica.

Following his return to Brazil in 1972, he participated in a number of group and solo exhibitions including at MAM Rio, MASP, and Palace of Arts SP. He also taught printmaking courses in Brazil and abroad.

He finally settled in Salvador in 1994, where in addition to his work as professional artist he has taught printmaking at the Museum of Modern Art of Bahia.

He is regarded as being the premier printmaker currently working in Salvador, being a worthy heir to amongst others Hansen Bahia. In 1996 Jorge Amado stated that "Antonello L'Abbate was an engraver of the first order, being largely responsible the resurgence of printmaking Bahia."

His attention to detail includes using multiple techniques on many of his works including acid etching,aquatint,dry point and soft varnish (vernis mou). He only uses the finest of fine art papers for printing, either Fabriano paper from Italy or Hahnemuhle paper from Germany.

We were very fortunate to meet with Antonello when we visited Salvador in 2013, and he agreed to make available to our clients a selection of his favorite engravings from his studio archives.
