Beauty is a summation of the parts working together in such a way that nothing needed to be added, taken away or altered — ' Elio Carletti '
Critiques from Italian art critics of the 20th Century:
- He specialises in painting people and nature, and his imagination has no bounds. Elio Carletti received his accreditations by studying in France, obviously inspired by Manet,Monet,Sisley,Pissarro,Degas,Renoir,Cezanne. He spaces his colours delicately,Carletti is a naturalist.
Prof Ezio Maria Caserta:
- I have seen with great pleasure the chromatic tone Carletti achieves in his paintings. I describe his works as neorealism incorporating light and transparency.
- He brings nature to light with depth of imagination and spirit. The chromatic tones distinguish him from all the rest.
Felici De Fazio:
- He captures dimension and form as an artist should often with surrealism and simplicity.
