Drawings and sketches

Like many of his contemporary artists, Luigi Garibbo painted “en plain air” significant landscapes from an artistic and documentary point of view. Then he reworked them in his studio, creating larger paintings. Many works were carried out by Garibbo even four decades after the first draft, and were exhibited at the Companies Promoting Fine Arts hall in Genoa, Florence and Turin. However, these first drafts are often more immediate and closer to a "modern" sensitivity, thanks to the technique used - the quick pencil and ink sketch, the fresh watercolor - without losing any details compared to the documentary precision and the topographical detail.
