Orfeo Tamburini (1910-1994),Italian painter and engraver, is known for his representations of urban life. He developed a passion for engraving and prints with warm intonations and broad lines, inspired by Cézanne. In the 1960's he was hired by the American magazine Fortune to depict many cities in the United States. In 1971, he moved to Paris and illustrated the city in all seasons. That same year, the Italian president awarded him the gold medal for cultural merit.
