Recently opened in May of 2015, Pinacoteca promises to be a very different art gallery for Litchfield County. Mia Weiner, its proprietor, comes to this new venue with a superb track record of knowledge, connoisseurship and integrity, after having been a NY private dealer specializing in Old Master Drawings since 1979. Ms. Weiner hopes to inform and inspire a new clientele by exhibiting European Paintings and Drawings from the 16th through 20th Centuries.
Primarily Italianate in her tastes, she will focus on painters of the 19th and 20th centuries who sojourned in Italy and created visions of its beauty, both natural and architectural. Many of these artists are not well-known but their talents and achievements are notable. Old Master Drawings comprised of astute studies in pen & ink or colored chalks, were rarely intended to be seen, because they were preparatory sketches for paintings. However the pleasure derived from absorbing these artists’ thoughts in progress is intensely rewarding.
Please stop in and see these extraordinary works, open Saturdays and Sundays from 1:00 – 5:00pm or by appointment.
