PRINCE ALBERT OF MONACO
“Thank you for hailing us this way, and for inviting us to think about our values, and about what makes our humanity. With my best wishes of achievement, joy and success. Warm regards.”
~ Albert de Monaco.
JAN VAN ALPHEN
“In a quest for original contemporary artists, I came across a multitude of gifted artists of all nationalities. Encounters with artists from Monaco, so far, were rare, but a most original one crossed my path, Caroline Bergonzi. She surprises as a painter, a sculptor of bronzes, a narrator and a philosopher. Her imposing series of 'The Apocalypse of Saint John demonstrates in a masterly way how all these artistic qualities can be united in one energetic young person. With time, quality and quantity seem only to increase. The actual CAROLINE BERGONZI CREATIVE ODYSSEY is there to testify for the exuberant merits of this inexhaustible source of talent.”
- Jan Van Alphen, Curator. NYC.

“... she chose the portrait, with an impressive success which makes me predict that she will reach there the perfection of her incontestable talent...”
~ His Highness Mr. Rene Novella, Private Advisor to the Prince of Monaco, 2010
“An experience that Miss Caroline Bergonzi, who divides her time between her New York and Monaco art studios, has known to value; and today, thanks to her remarkable work, Caroline contributes to the Principality cultural glow.”
~ Part of a note by Bernard Pasquier, General Secretary of the “Association des Monégasques de L’Etranger.”
“Elegantly down from the Monegasque hills, like a mermaid half-woman and half-in-New Yorker, Caroline Bergonzi takes us on a hallucinatory visual world. Her monumental work dedicated to the Apocalypse is an Abyssal telescoping of worlds and visions. The colors of the Greek temples, the original ones, the ones that draped Gods and Goddesses, Heroes and Centaurs are implemented without any complex into an Apocalypse of sublimated violence. The torments of Saint Jean, polished by the ecclesiastical use, surround and captivate us. Sensitive to the imagination of a Max Ernst but also to the language of an André Masson, Caroline Bergonzi is forging her own identity, sometimes descriptive, sometimes narcissistic, always fascinating. Aware that the key reading is for each individual’s eyes, she accepts to let free this ineffable interval allowing voyeurs that we are to enter her world, to apprehend this biblical torment.“
