Biography   Victor Gatto


Born in New York City, he lived there most of his life, retiring to Miami, Florida shortly before his death. He was 45 before he began to paint, having boxed professionally and served in the US Navy . In 1938, he chanced upon an art show in Greenwich Village. Inspired, he began to paint and shortly after attracted critical attention including work exhibited at the Whitney Museum. His oil paintings are remarkably complex. He used brushes with only a few hairs for great detail and built them up layer after layer. He seemed tireless, sometimes working 36 hours straignt on his scenes of vibrant New York City.
