Works of Art- Artistic reproduction

Silvia Salvadori was born in 1978 in Sinalunga, in the heart of Tuscany.  She’s a graduate of the “Duccio  di Buoninsegna” Art Institute and holds a degree in Art Conservation from the University of Siena.  Living in the city of the Palio, she has established a spiritual and material ties with the surviving art workshops which preserve the pictorial traditions of the best artists of the Tuscan schools of the middle ages and the Renaissance.    

Silvia Salvadori creates an ideal continuity by resurrecting through her hands a tradition and know-how on their way to oblivion.  The warm reflections of gold, the brocades of clothes, the ecstatic rapture of the saints, the mystic exchange of glances between the Virgin Mary and Infant Jesus and the richness of Christian symbolism, all recreated with talent, refinement and dedication, come to life in the works that Silvia Salvadori is able to reproduce using  the same artistic wisdom and skills of the medieval masters.  She makes use of poplar and linden panels, dust and leaves of pure gold (in order to make incisions through the use of burins purposefully created by the latest master engravers),  and natural pigments mixed with egg yolk, following the instructions contained in Cennino Cennini’s Book of Art (1370-1440).  
Silvia Salvadori’s work is probably the last precious testimonial that preserves and passes on a culture that represents the history of a people whose land and spirit can awaken a sense of wonder in our souls.  Her works of art emanate from an interest which is, above all, accurate, masterly and characterized by ongoing  research and experimentation. It reaches in time throughout  the entire Tuscan region, starting from Arezzo, with the hidden treasures of its churches, moving onto Florence’s medieval art, which was perhaps overshadowed by the splendour of the renaissance, and finally reaching Siena, with the sacred art of its icons and Bicchernes civic paintings with historical decorations on wooden covers containing the accounting records of the municipal era.
