Enrico Campagnola, deceased  (Italian, 1911-1984)


Enrico Campagnola was Venetian and lived his childhood in Possagno, (Veneto) in the home of Canova.  His parents were Venetian, as he liked to point out.   Campagnola died on March 27th, 1984 in Besançon, where his parents had emigrated between WWI & II.
He studied at the Royal Academy in Rome where he obtained the professorship of sculpture at the age of 23. Back in France, he worked for a year at the École des Beaux-Arts of Besançon. Campagnola obtained distinction in the Salon of French Artists in 1939 with a carved “offering” and creating a few monuments in the region after the war. He moved to Paris in 1947 and worked in a shop advertising. He carved small subjects, did drawing and painting. He won a prize at the Salon at the Bernheim Gallery with a canvas that also received distinction in the International Painting Competition of Deauville in 1955. This was the beginning of his painting career and success as an artist.
He exhibited at the Biennale in Venice, the Quadriennale in Rome, the Museum of Besançon, the Salon d’Automne and the Galerie Charpentier in Paris, where he was selected for the Greenshields Prize. His work has been purchased by the Municipality of Paris and by the French Government.
