August Mosca, an urban realist, was born in Naples, Italy in 1909 and emigrated to the United States with his family in 1911. He attended Yale School of Fine Arts and the Pratt Institute. In 1937 he met Joseph Stella who encouraged him to paint the city in a form which would reflect himself. 1939 saw the completion of Mr. Mosca’s first paintings of New York City bridges and subways. His work reveals his goal of understanding the human spirit; its creations, and its relation to nature. Mosca seamlessly blends classical principles, abstract clarity, and Italian light to produce paintings of astonishing vigor, variety and luminosity as shown in this example.
