Technique: Oil

Born in Sicily in 1953, José Salvaggio currently resides in Haute-Marne, France.

An accomplished landscape painter, José Salvaggio first attended the School of Paris where he studied with the painter Paul Andebourhr, then the School of Émilie Simon (also in France) where he studied with Claude Marin. Salvaggio, who paints on the motif, knows how to orchestrate luminosity, judicious choice of tones and delicate touches, so that a great sensitivity emerges from his painting.
