Vincent Arcilesi - Tribeca Window
January 2024


Bio / CV

Vincent Arcilesi (1932 - 2022)
My work reflects my two great passions in life: the human figure and the landscape. I try to portray the
nude form, both male and female, in all its sensuous glory. I have painted compositions since 1964 and
started painting landscapes on site in 1966. While at School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where I was
trained as an abstract painter, I fell under the spell of the great French Impressionist paintings in their
collection. Over the years, the two strains have become intermingled so that many of my large paintings
depict nude figures in various landscapes, mythic as well as real.
