|Gifted with precocious artistic talent, at the early age of
fifteen Anne Martinazzi enters the circle of the students of the
French painter G. Sécan.
During the years of university formation (resulting in a Language
degree) she continues to cultivate the passion for painting
frequenting the atelier of the Maestro and sharpening her technique.
In the late 60s she begins to expose in Paris arousing the
admiration and the encouragement of well-known critics.
In the following years, there will be other exposures in Paris,
Beirut, Varese, Amsterdam, München, Milan, Ferrara etc. in
which she presents works with a notable variety of subjects and of
kinds (figurative, abstract, portraits,
|sculptures), showing a remarkable
stylistic skill, which met with the favour of merchants and
collectors both in Italy and abroad.
Among the critics that have written about her there show up
Maximilian Gauthier, Claude Roger- Marx, Raymond Charmet, André
Parinaud, Bernard Gauthron, Michel Tapié, Charles Munari,
Mario Portalupi, Maria Brandi, Renato Tedeschi, Joseph Marchiori.

on her work.
Her works are also present at
