Families through the centuries commissioned
European classic portraitists to create art that reminds them of what is most important in life - their own family.
These portraits were painted in Grand Style, subtlety textured, life sized, framed in sumptuous gold-leaf or hand carved wood frames and proudly displayed in homes of royals, aristocrats and socialites.
Today, Siena Artè continues in the grand style tradition of those old world master painters.
Elegantly posed, beautifully lighted, finely finished portraits in the highest standards of consistency and quality - an eloquent reminder of whom it portrays and the importance of family relationships.
