Rustic strength effortlessly complements delicate grace in “Wild Rose Berries,” Pauline Eblé Campanelli’s signature painting. This exceptionally popular work has sold 600,000 copies, outselling Picasso at a respected firm that licenses and sells prints by both artists. Campanelli (1943 – 2001) was consistently snubbed by galleries and museums, but sold hundreds of thousands of her artworks—a number exceeded only by Andrew Wyeth. Campanelli believed in the earth-based religion, Paganism, which gave her insight into the beauty within ordinary objects.
Pauline Eblé Campanelli (1943 – 2001) transformed ordinary, rustic objects into precious, rare items. Married to famous watercolorist Dan Campanelli, she was an exceptional artist in her own right. Her work was ignored by galleries and museums, but it sold by the thousands through catalogs, furniture stores, and print and posters shops. Pauline’s belief in the earth-based religion, Paganism, also influenced her appreciation of the beauty within simplicity.
