Barbara D'Antonio

Barbara D'Antonio

Presented by Haley Art Gallery

Barbara D'Antonio's paintings are influenced by the Post Impressionists’ works in The Barnes Foundation, specifically, Bonnard and Matisse. She's inspired by the artists that have come before her. Her eyes look at the world around, but what she sees has been filtered by the artists of the past. The work that emerges includes a little bit of reimagined memory, and a whole lot of art history. Her works are in private collections in the United States as well as in Crete, Greece and Spinetoli, Italy where she lived and worked in the summers between 1985 through 2014. She considers herself a modern, figurative artist. Arts education includes such Pennsylvania arts institutions as Main Line Center for the Arts, Bryn Mawr College, Haverford College, The Barn’s Foundation, and the Fleisher School of Art. Her major influences were Biagio Pinto, Fritz Janschka, Bruce Gagnier, Violet DeMazia, and Francis McCarthy.
