What is “The Masters” Collection?




“The Masters,” is a collection of highly prized works of art based on Bornacelli’s 26 years of travels around the world.  Each piece is detailed dedication, discipline, and commitment to the development of the aesthetic arts by Bornacelli. It’s his way of engaging an audience with the nature and appreciation of the beauty of painting, as he sees it.


At times, “The Masters” can be a certain painting that evolves, not into a different style, but an achievement in the craftsmanship and artistic technique in and of itself.


There are many ways of developing what Bornacelli will see as “The Masters.”  It is not based on style or size, but rather the technique that was learned and honed.  The technique or craftsmanship of “The Masters” comes from Bornacelli’s study pieces.  “The Masters” is a series of milestones that details the evolution of Bornacelli’s work. This collection is a recorded history of Bornacelli’s career as a professional artist.


These paintings are made of the finest materials; often one of a kind, pigments from Gold, Silver, Copper, or pure pigments from Italian marvel, and other precious stones like Lapis Lazuli, creating great Ultramarines and other vivid colors.
