Images of Beautiful Women Celebrating Motherhood

Celebrating Motherhood with paintings of beautiful women, mothers & daughters

Pino Daeni (1939 – 2010) was an Italian-American book illustrator and artist. He is known for romantic sensual images of beautiful women, painted in loose Impressionistic style. One of the highest paid book illustrators of his time, he created over 3,000 book covers, movie posters and magazine illustrations.

Pino passed away in 2010, but he’s remembered as one of the great figurative artists of the 20th century. Indeed, his original work is highly sought after by Art Collectors. While his limited editions are selling everywhere, his originals are only available in few Art Galleries listed below, ranging from $36,000 to $150,000. I was fortunate to observe his original Mothers & Daughters piece up close at the Mainview Gallery in Arizona and create a replica of his painting.

I’ve painted a Mothers & Daughters Oil Replica measuring 24 x 30 inches and currently available at under $5,000.

Mothers & Daughters Replica by Tatyana

If you have ever visited Phoenix Arizona, you’ve most likely enjoyed the Old Town area. Located in the heart of Scottsdale, its home to the best restaurants, shopping, and art galleries. While living in Arizona, I’ve visited the Mainview Gallery located in Old Town Scottsdale.

I have been long admiring beautiful paintings by my fellow artists Dale Terbush, Vidan (Pino’s nephew) and Alan Wolton. And there was one particular piece, endued with feminine energy and joy of motherhood that attracted me. It was Mothers & Daughters original oil by one of my favorites, Pino, an Italian Romantic Impressionist artist. I was fortunate to befriend the gallery owner, David Guglielmo, who kindly allowed me paint in the gallery to make a replica.

The original Mothers & Daughters original oil painting by Pino measures 44″ x 60″. I have decided to make my copy smaller and only paint a portion of the original painting.

Back in 2013 I painted a replica of Mothers & Daughters from close observation inside the Mainview Gallery. Entire process took 4 sessions, few hours each. It reminded me of my earlier years painting replicas of the Greatest Works of Art at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC. Using this training, it was easy to deconstruct the layers. Inspecting original from up close revealed that he painted it in just a few layers, with most work done ala-prima or wet on wet. As an illustrator he had to work fast, often finishing entire piece in few hours, all done by hand. Evidently, it became his signature style to dazzle with extremely vivid accent colors and to leave parts of his paintings unfinished, eluding to spontaneity with artistic flare.

About Romantic Impressionist Artist Pino

Pino Daeni was an Italian artist who is known for his amazing figurative paintings of women. The use of warm colors in a unique manner made his paintings exceptional. Some of his works characterize sunny beaches and flowery backgrounds. Pino is particularly good in capturing the exact emotions in the right manner. He is one of the best known Italian book illustrator who used Impressionist techniques. He had designed more than 3000 covers for books and magazines.

Most of his earlier works featured female subjects in colorful skirts and free flowing dresses. His technique is often considered subtle and simple. Pino Daeni paintings are of great demand in auctions and private sales. His famous works include: Remember When, Mystic Dreams, Morning Breeze, Love, First Glance, After Dinner and Anticipation.

Pino’s son, Max Dangelico, celebrates his father’s legacy, both as an illustrator and a fine artist. According to Max, many art lovers call his father the publishing industry’s “last great American illustrator. After Pino, it all went digital,” Dangelico says. “So my father was the last great illustrator that painted by hand, oil on board.
