Worked and lived in Venice, Italy.
Ship Portraits, often with local background.
Watercolours starting at BP 800 (Great Britain) or Euro 1.000 (Continental Europe). Prices depend on subject, size, date, quality and condition. Please send an e-mail to receive an exact offer for your painting (free of charge for persons considering to sell their painting).
A member of the Luzzo family, whose style is very similar to that of Giovanni. He was apparently active mainly in the 1870s and of the small number of well done ship portraits he produced very few have survived the course of time.
