August Mosca

August Mosca was active/lived in New York / Italy.  August Mosca is known for silverpoint, modernist cityscape and figure painting.

August Mosca

August Mosca, an urban realist, was born in Naples, Italy in 1909. He exhibited at the American Institute of Arts & Letters, Brooklyn Museum, Butler Institute of Art, California Palace of the Legion of Honor, Feragil Gallery, Metropolitan Museum, Museum of Modern Art, New York Cultural Center and the Parrish Art Museum.

It has been said of his work that Mosca, "exults in the energy and voltage of the urban scene . . . . In contrast, his landscapes are languorous, opulent and sensual . . . his drawings, delicate filigrees in silverpoint and ink. A painter for all seasons, Mosca seamlessly blends classical principles, abstract clarity and Italian light to produce paintings of astonishing vigor, variety and luminosity."
