Rome has many famous fountains. One of the artist's favorite being the Fountain of Four Rivers by Bernini. The fountains of Rome can be busy spots for tourists. That is why Onelio chose to paint this lesser known fountain called Fontana Del Tritone, and in the spirit of romance, he included just one amorous couple in this glowing night scene.

Getting to Know Onelio

Onelio Marrero paints city scenes of everyday life. In an impressionistic style he captures the romanticism of New York City, the picturesque fountains in Central Park and the wet city streets after a rainy afternoon. His use of warm tones creates a sense of nostalgia and the feeling that you have visited or seen this particular scene before. Onelio will often paint from direct observation, or he will work from a combination of photographs and combine numerous sources into one piece. In this way his work combines reality with fantasy, creating a new story with each painting. His work captures an appreciation for beauty in all of its greatest forms; nature, art, and people.
