Treasure Investments Corporation is proud to present the masterpieces of the renowned and prolific artist, Lorenzo Ghiglieri.
The sheer power, magnificence and magnitude of the works of this modern American Master transcend description through mere words. The visual impact of his artwork speaks volumes and moves the uninitiated fine art admirer as well as the novice and seasoned fine art collector alike.
Born in America of Italian, French and German immigrants, Lorenzo Ghiglieri grew up in a rich ethnic culture on the fringe of Los Angeles near clear mountains, sandy beaches and arid deserts of southern California. After receiving extensive formal training, Lorenzo took it upon himself to study the Old Masters, especially deriving influence from Rembrandt, Velazquez, and Corot. At the age of seventeen, he was honored with a prestigious art scholarship, but his studies were interrupted while serving duty on a U.S. destroyer during the Korean War. He received his first commission as a combat illustrator from the United States Government to paint a marine scene that became a gift to Great Britain, to honor Queen Elizabeth II's coronation.
At twenty-two, Lorenzo was working as an illustrator on various national accounts in New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles through an international advertising agency.
His search for meaning in his work led him from formal training into raw life experiences. Living the life of a lonely frontiersman, Lorenzo trekked across mountains and deserts, researching and documenting for his art. He fought his way out of grizzly confrontations and the wilderness from which some men disappear forever. He lived the simple, rugged life with the Eskimos on the final frontier of Alaska. Out of the richness of these experiences he emerged, deeply ingrained with the will to preserve, protect and prolong America's western heritage. It is etched in every stroke of his paintings, molded in every one of his bronze sculptures.
Lorenzo's work graces the walls of the most prestigious establishments in the world. His sculptures and paintings have been presented to Pope John Paul II at The Vatican in Rome, President Ronald Reagan at the White House, Tiger Woods and General Schwartzkopf are a few who take pride in their ownership of a Lorenzo Ghiglieri sculpture.
In 1994, Lorenzo sculpted the "Official American Bald Eagle" in bronze, silver, and gold, now on display at the White House and part of their permanent collection.
Every work adheres to his philosophy: It must be purposeful and meaningful, it must be positive and uplifting. As a result, his work is immensely valuable not only for what it is, but for what it stands for. It will endure, serving as a record of the past, a lesson for the present, and a hope for the future.
