Item specifics

Original/ Repro: Original Medium: Oil
Subject: Landscape/ Cityscape

This very fine painting by Edward Runci is a rare example of his art, which concentrated on portraiture and commercial applications.  There are faint cracks at the upper right and lower left but they do not detract from the beauty and style of the painting (please see photos).

Runci was born in Genoa, Italy, in 1921.  He was brought up by his Mother and Grandparents in Catania, Sicily, where the setting inspired him to draw from an early age.  As a painter, he moved to the United States in the 1930's.  Runci's career took off after World War II when he became a portraitist to the elite of Hollywood.  Eventually known for his paintings of pin-up girls, he also painted advertisements for companies such as Coca Cola.  Although most known for his paintings of women, Runci also painted clowns and landscapes.  He spent his last decades in Big Bear Lake, California, where he had a studio and art school.

Runci paintings regularly fetch between $2000 and $5000 at auction in the States.
