Biography from Rhino International Art:
Patrick Antonelle has been painting for over three decades continuously in pursuit of perfecting his talent.  His art education is from the School of Visual Arts at the Brooklyn Museum and the Art Students League.  However, he attributes life and nature as his best teachers.

Subjects include the landscapes of Pennsylvania, the seascapes of Long Island, and, most recently, the many facades and moods of New York City, Central Park and their environs. These are depictions of his favorite New York architecture in various seasons rendered in his own Pointillistic- Impressionist style. In this genre, he often resurrects nostalgic New York scenes that have long been forgotten.

Manhattan Arts magazine called Patrick "the foremost impressionist painter of our century." One of his goals is to transform the prosaic urban scene into something infinitely romantic. With his canvases, he strives to combine nature with the ingenuity of man, specifically as embodied in architecture, thereby creating a peaceful, workable harmony to reflect upon and absorb.

His works are included in corporate and private collections, including the Trumps and Regis Philbin as well as Apple Computer, Citicorp and Panasonic.

Patrick believes in a sincere and direct approach to life depicted in his paintings with honesty and truth and with an ambiance of tranquility via his paintings. It is his hope and intention with each image that the viewer experiences the serenity and peace he strives earnestly to convey.

An editor of Art Speak Magazine, commenting on Patrick's landscapes of Snow in the Woods and Reflecting Waters, stated that Patrick's works "offer an entree into the eternal calm and freshness of nature with their scintillating surface of light".

Practicing what he preaches, or paints, Patrick has been actively involved with many charities, donating much time and work to children worldwide, the elderly, and to efforts to conquer aids and cancer.  Both UNICEF and Tomorrow's Children's Fund regularly feature his artwork on greeting cards to spread joy, beauty and inspiration.

In offering reproductions of his work, Patrick hopes to introduce a wider audience to his painterly manifestations of a world more romantic, nostalgic and caring than the one we currently inhabit.  He hopes to show in his imagery the special relationships of man, nature and the environment inherited and built. "That the reproductions are issued as limited editions provides an investment aspect as well."

* Manhattan Arts Magazine, November 1992

Biography from Sunflower Fine Art Galleries, Mirrors, & Picture F:
Patrick Antonelle is a painter focused on effects of light.  He studied at the School of Visual Arts, the Brooklyn Museum Art School, and The Art Students League.

His styles are Impressionism and Pointillism, and he uses both styles to create his New York City scenes, as well as his landscapes of Nantucket and European locations in England, France, and Italy.  Also his work shows Asian influence such as Winter in the Park, a scene in which tiny figures can be seen traversing the snow banks in Central Park. The diminutive scale of the figures, here as in most of Antonelle's paintings and prints, hints at the insignificance of the human being in the total scheme of things, which has always been a prominent feature of traditional Chinese landscape painting. Here, too, the misty quality of the tall buildings looming over the park and its bare, slender trees can perhaps harken back to the misty mountains seen in Chinese scrolls, In the falling snow, Antonelle's pointillism is evident.

Antonelle uses lush color and richly textured foliage in another New York scene, Gramercy Park Summer with its silver of clear blue sky peeking through the verdant trees and lawns, while a person walks a little dog along a path dappled with the shadows of the leaves.  Here the artist intends to use light in an almost transcendent way with the yellow accents on the grassy areas bordering the path.

As a young man Antonelle considered becoming an architect, and this has inspired him over the years to make the landmark buildings of old New York some of his favorite subjects.  These paintings, tinged with nostalgia for the older style of architecture that he prefers over the glass facades of more recent buildings, combine firm, architectural linear strokes with his softer handling of the more ethereal elements of light and shadows.

More recently, however, Antonelle has painted European landscapes particularly  scenes of Tuscany, Italy, with its hilly topography and fertile vegetation.  An example  is Sunflowers-Tuscany, where clusters of the big, brilliant yellow flowers dominate the foreground of the composition and recede into the distance, where red-roofed rustic houses are visible, set against the verdant hills.

His work is in private collections including those of Leonard Bernstein and Frank Sinatra.
