Joseph Collazzi (1914 - 1989). An Italian American artist who immigrated to the Bronx in 1932, and was prominent in the New England states in the 1930's painting in the art deco style and his many fantasy landscapes.
He studied art at the Leonardo da Vinci School of Fine Art in NYC and went on to the East Coast to paint his many country cottage scenes, covered bridges and autumn and winter scenes up into the 1940's.
Little is known about him after the 1940's and there is quite a community out there still trying to piece his life together.
This painting of a beautiful cottage overlooking a quiet river and across from a forest is larger than most.
The old frame is serviceable and the painting is in good vintage condition.
