Photo-Realistic Cityscape paintings by Raphaella Spence
Raphaella Spence was born in London in 1978. Her family travelled to France where she spent the first eight years of her life. When they returned to London she continued her studies and her interest in art began to emerge. Her initial works were academic still life paintings. At age twelve her family moved definitively to Italy where she completed her studies at the St. Georges English School in Rome. Influenced by views of the Umbrian countryside, Spence turned toward the creation of the Photorealist landscape.
Spence has received critical recognition for her work in widely circulated newspapers and magazines including The International Herald Tribune, The Spectator, Arte di Giorgio Mondadori, Panorama, La Repubblica, Corriere Della Sera and II Messaggero.
The paintings of Raphaella Spence are included in private, public and corporate collections throughout the United States of America, Canada, England, Russia, Italy, Austria and Germany.
