Couture Fashion Women throughout time La Dolce Vita Nostalgia Rome
About the artist
Gabrielle Tito spent her childhood between New York and Rome, Italy, immersed in a culture of classical art, fashion and nostalgia for La Dolce Vita. Her family, having carved out a small niche in Rome’s fashion world, fed her obsession with painting couture. Her greatest inspiration came from the relief sculpture, figurative paintings and costume-design sketches by her late Aunt, artist and costume designer, Rinnà Tito.
As an artist trained in the Old Master tradition, Gabrielle melds classical technique and historical inspiration with fashion and artistic expression of the moment. Stories are written between the seams of history. There is nothing that holds a secret or a good story like a well worn dress! These are the stories she paints.
Gabrielle studied art history and studio art at Dartmouth College and earned an MFA from the New York Academy of Art. She studied with artist Gaspare de Fiore in Rome, Italy and later apprenticed with artist James Childs in New York City, who continues the atelier tradition of Gerome.
As a Mom who raised two girls on her own Gabrielle is inspired to tell the story of Woman throughout time.
