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."
