The Italian-born painter has lived in the United States for eight years, but for her entire career, she has taken stylistic inspiration from the tonali- ties traditionally found in northern European art. All these influences now come together in a new gallery exhibit of oil paintings, Di Pietro divides the 20-work collection into four diverse series that she painted between 2005 and 201 I: New York, American Aerial Views, Seaside and Boston Ghost Town. Though each section has its own distinct qualities and content, Di Pietro ties them together /vith her "love of gray," a color that she says fascinates her and relates to her appreciation of Danish art. "I've always taken an interest in women and their world," says Di Pietro, who pays homage to one of her heroines, Louisa May Alcott, by depicting her with the "fabulous" golden dome of the State House in the background.
