The most collected Italian artist in the world at the Kempinski Palace Portoroz!

Daniele Dondé, after successfully promoting his art in capital cities all over the world such as Paris, London, Rome, Sydney, Vienna, Geneva, Tokyo, Monte Carlo, Moscow and New York, will show his fascinating work exclusively at the Kempinski Palace Portoroz.

From 3rd until 19th of August 2012 the works of art will be at a glance in the Ladies Saloon on the ground floor of the Kempinski Palace Portoroz. The exhibition with a free entrance has a focus on his latest collection "150 YEARS of Gustav Klimt", his homage to Gustav Klimt, Sophia Loren, Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, Michael Jackson and Liz Taylor. World-famous and charismatic “rock star” of painters gives to the famous motifs of Gustav Klimt, characterised by the use of gold, silver, glitter, Swarovski­Strass crystals and sparkling mosaic stones, a unique unmistakable shine, which radiates a whole new glamour of Adele Bloch-Bauer and Judith I.

Being the most collected Italian artist in the world, he boasts a large number of celebrity clients like Rafael Nadal, Roger Moore, Frank Sinatra, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Albert of Monaco, Flavio Briatore, the Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich and Sophia Loren, which is also well connected with the rich history of Palace Hotel. The miraculous beauty of this famous Italian actress and one of the biggest divas from the 1960s, who stayed at the Palace will always be remembered as a moment of la dolce vita. This historical connections and amazing architecture of the hotel which coincides with the concept of the exhibition were also an immense motive for the artist to choose the Kempinski Palace Portoroz as his next location to present his work.

This is a new 21st century movement and trend in today's art world. His motto: "give everyone a masterpiece", explains the philosophy that art can no longer be exclusive, everyone should be able to own a masterpiece, not just the rich and famous. European, Asian, Australian and American artists have copied and followed his idea, which is to legalise fake works of art throughout the world.

Dondé Daniele grew up in a renowned art dealer family in Cremona in Northern Italy. His "master copies" such as da Vinci's "Mona Lisa", Van Gogh's "Vase with Sunflowers" and Monet's "Poppy Field at Argenteuil" quickly became legal "original works" and therefore as legal copies available worldwide. In 1999 in Geneva he received recognition from "Crystal Globe".
