“anyone can paint what can be seen and what it cannot”

Anne d’Orléans, descendant of five generations deeply linked to painting, sculpture and music, thanks to the artistic and cultural concern of her family.

“I was too small, about four or five years old, and I spied on my older siblings and cousins when my aunt, who painted beautifully, taught them painting lessons.”.

At the age of 9, she discovered that “anyone can paint what can be seen and what it cannot”when assisting in the study of the Portuguese artist Eduardo Malta while the portraits of her family were made.

From here “I began painting thousands of inventions that I imagined”.

At this age, she began her training with prestigious teachers, always under the  roof of the family home in which “painting and drawing was a pleasure”.

The visits to the different museums of all the cities that she knew, due to her multiple trips, meant an excellent reinforcement to her artistic and didactic formation.

Her parents imbue her passion for good taste, thanks to the training she received; a training based on continuous contact with culture and art in all its facets and expressions.

A passionate watercolorist, she defined herself as a “self-taught and free-form artist with the influence of the continuous artistic environment”.
