Walter Valentini (Pergola, October 22, 1928) is an Italian painter, sculptor and engraver, internationally recognized in the field of graphics and engraving. He is a master of techniques such as etching, aquatint, drypoint, multi-color lithography, intaglio.
Valentini's geometric imagery is influenced by the Russian avant-garde of the twentieth century (Constructivism) and, marginally, by the architecture painted by de Chirico in the metaphysical period, but it is based above all on the sense of harmony and proportion investigated by the Italian artists of the fifteenth century: De pictura, De re aedificatoria, De statua by Leon Battista Alberti, De prospectiva pingendi by Piero della Francesca and De divina proportione by Luca Pacioli are treatises on perspective and the golden rule that will orient all of Valentini's research on space, forms and their balance.
Astronomy and cosmography were also important sources of inspiration for Valentini. His approach to architecture and celestial mechanics is mathematical and rigorous, but not without its own poetry.
