Tullio Ceccato was born in 1945 in
Asolo, to be exact, in the 16th century
summer house of the bishops of Treviso
called "Ca' Vescovo",
which was demolished in 1967 so that a new factory
could be built. Now he lives and works in a house with a splendid view of
the Asolan hills and Monte Grappa, about 50 km north of Venice.
He has taken part in many group
exhibitions and has set up several of his own (see the
file: exhibitions). Apart from the Veneto, he has
worked in Holland, Sweden, Canada, France, Austria, Poland
and the United States (San Francisco and Los Angeles). His workes can be
found in these countries and also in Great Britain, Germany, Australia,
Venezuela and, of course, in many Italian towns.
Tullio Ceccato is an exponent of the impressionist
trend of Veneto painting. His subjects vary from flowers and portraits to
landscapes, mostly of Venice and the hills of Asolo; subjects with a
rustic charm, with pure colours and a lightness of image. He began
painting in 1969, with Tom Walker, an
English painter, and Robert Hilton, an American one; developed his
artistic style working with various other artists, among whom
was Dino Zampogna from Milan. But his master is nature
felt and expressed in the classic manner of the great
Veneto artists of the past.
