Twilight Saga Wiki

"Solimena was greatly inspired by Carlisle's friends. He often painted them as gods. Aro, Marcus, Caius: nighttime patrons of the arts."

Francesco Solimena was a famous Italian painter who lived in the 17th century, during the Baroque era.



Solimena's portrait of the Volturi.

Francesco was an Italian painter who favored the Baroque style, and painted a portrait of Aro, Caius, Marcus, and Carlisle (who was living with the Volturi at the time). He especially enjoyed painting the Volturi leaders as gods due to their transcendent beauty.

Carlisle kept one of his paintings when he traveled to the New World, which Edward showed Bella for the first time in Twilight (New Moon being the first time in the movies).

Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined[]

In the alternate story of Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined, Solimena painted a portrait of Sulpicia, Athenodora, Marcus, Mele, and Carine instead.
