Gordon Breckenridge

Gordon Breckenridge Annual London Exhibition.

Gordon Breckenridge, one of Tuscany's best loved

contemporary artists, is in London to exhibit a

collection of his paintings opening on the 16th Oct

2011 (Private Viewing). Presented by Tuscan Style

at The Air Gallery, 32 Dover Street, London, the

collection titled "Pure Tuscany" includes 40+ of his

works depicting the warmth of Tuscany with his

characteristic bold use of strong colours to capture

the atmosphere and feeling.

Born in Canada in 1948 where he lived the first 24

years of his life, Gordon Breckenridge moved to

Florence where he graduated from the Academy of

Fine Arts and subsequently studied charcoal drawing

and painting with the renowned artist Nerina Simi.

These 9 years of classical training provided the

foundation from which Gordon went on to develop

his own unique, personal style.

After years of travelling continually painting mostly in the Cinque

Terre and Portofino with exhibitions there, and also, in Canada,

America and Europe, in 1991 Gordon, together with his Italian wife

and 4 children moved to San Gimignano, Tuscany, where he

opened his own Art Gallery.

He is the recipient of many honours including two “Greenshield

awards” and his paintings are to be found in over 500 collections

worldwide earning him international recognition and appreciation.

Today this successful gallery is still family run and the artist

continues to produce some of the finest of Tuscany's works.
