- PIERO DALLE CESTE PAINTER
Piero Dalle Ceste was a Italian painter and is considered by critics to be one of the greatest representatives ofHoly art of the '900. He was born in 1912 in Refrontolo in the province of Treviso.
The premature death of his father in 1918 forced him, at the age of only six, to undertake an odyssey in institutions for orphans, first in the Veneto region and then in Turin. In Turin, still very young, he demonstrated that he possessed a very precocious spontaneous talent in drawing and painting.
In 1933, at the age of just 21, his old parish priest commissioned him a painting capable of replacing the Our Lady of the Rosary by Palma il Giovane, ruined by bombing. From that day curias, congregations and convents of many Italian cities, as well as in Europe as well as in the Americas, trusted him for large celebratory cycles, apses, domes, altarpieces, stained glass windows and mosaics.
Among the most important achievements we mention the frescoes of the Church of S.S. Announced in Turin, the frescoes of the Shrine of Mary Help of Christians in Turin, the cycle of frescoes in the presbytery and in the apsidal basin of the Parish Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary of Caramagna Piedmont in the province of Cuneo, the fresco of S.M. Church della Valle in Cunico in the province of Asti, the interior of the Shrine of Santa Rita in Turin, the altarpieces of the Sanctuary of San Giuseppe Marello in Asti and Santa Chiara in Bra in the province of Cuneo, i cholera pictures of 1855 and Our Lady of the Rosary in the Parish Church of Refrontolo, the frescoes in the apses of the Mary Queen of Peace Parish in Turin.
Following the growth of his fame, he was entrusted with the chair of painting at the Accademia Albertina in Turin.
To the sacred subjects Piero Dalle Ceste alternates a easel painting inspired by a post-impressionistic realism. His favorite subjects are the female portraits, the children, the landscapes, the still life characterized by golden brightness and tonal softness typical of Venetian artistic production.
Piero Dalle Ceste died in Turin in 1974.
