Born in Marche, Italy on May 19, 1911. "Wedo" Georgetti came to America at age one. After a brief period in St Paul, the family settled in Tacoma, Washington. He grew up, attended high school, and began to study art there. After moving to California in 1934, he shipped out of San Francisco as a merchant seaman for many years. Visiting the ports of the world, Georgetti obtained much of his subject matter from his travels. Working in oil and watercolor, he painted many nudes and street scenes. He lived in Sausalito on San Francisco Bay until his death on December 12, 2005.
