Art Verona began in 2005 and immediately caught the attention of the art world because of its insistence on high quality and due to its decision to invite only Italian galleries with the highest profile.

Art Verona was conceived of, and initiated by, Danilo Vignati, the president of Fullsteam s.r.l., a company specialised in art events, and Massimo Simonetti who for twenty-five years had been a well-known gallery owner. The first edition took place between 13 and 16 October 2005 and immediately aroused great interest.

Year after year, innovation after innovation, it has grown both in quality and in its success among critics and the public.

And now, in part because of its particular approach, it is considered one of the few important Italian events that absolutely cannot be missed.
Jansen’s Museum collections include The PERMM Museum of Contemporary Art, The New Britain Museum of American Art, The Moscow Museum of Modern Art (MMOMA), The Housatonic Museum of Art, CT, The Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art and the Smithsonian Institution. He is also one of the ABSOLUT VODKA artist’s along side names like Damien Hirst, Andy Warhol and Keith Haring. Jansen’s work has appeared in News media such as the The Boston Globe, the New York Times, Art News, Art in America and Vanity Fair Italy. His work will be at the International Auction house Phillips de Pury Moscow and Geneva in 2014.

Marcus Jansen will be featured at ART VERONA in October 2013, represented by Galleria Maria Bianca Rizzi & Matthias Ritter Gallery. His work will be formally introduced to the European audience in Italy, with a solo Museum show to follow in Rome in 2014.

Marcus Jansen, has become a household name not just in Florida State or in the United States, perhaps easily marked by his cover appearance on the Alumni National publication “New American Paintings No. 94” in 2011 with his work “Creeping Obstacles in Kansas.” A 135×88” sweeping size canvas that sold the same year to his biggest private collector in Naples who owns the largest Jansen collection of any private collector in the world.

According to long time art dealer Glenn Lorchi. “It has been my opinion that ”New American Paintings” has been especially stingy when selecting Florida artists in the past. The publication is a juried collection of regional artist work. They split the country into four regions and publish four different select collections. Marcus is the first artist from Florida on the cover that I can remember.” said Lorchi. Jansen’s work then was selected by no other than Dan Cameron, (Founder of the largest American Biennial, the US Biennial inc. and currently the Chief Curator at the Orange County Museum of Art in California).

This year Jansen was already recently the winner of the “Aesthetica Art Prize 2013, United Kingdom, the “Dave Bown Projects” Award 2012 in the United States and the “Art Laguna Art Prize” 2013 in March that took place in Venice Italy with Jansen being the only American painter selected among an International panel of jurors that included: Lina Lazaar, (Great Britain, Expert in International Contemporary Art for Sotheby’s), Sabine Schasch, (Switzerland, Director and Curator of Kunsthaus Basel), Adam Budak,(United States, Curator of Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden of Washington) and many other high profile jurors from across the globe. The International selection that consisted of Painters, Photographers, Sculptors and Installation artists were presented at the Arsenale-Venice, Tese di san Cristoforo, Venice Italy early 2013.
