Francesco Spicuzza (American, b. Termini, Sicily, 1883-1962,) Landscape with Trees, ca. mid-20th century, Oil on Masonite, 23 ½ x 27 in. v. $1,800 One of Wisconsin’s most prolific artists of the 20th century, Spicuzza immigrated to the United States as a child from his native Sicily. He first studied with Robert Schade and later Alexander Mueller at the Milwaukee Art Student’ League. He also received instruction in Impressionist painting from John Carlson at Woodstock, New York. At the behest of his wife, the artist opened a studio after the panic of 1907 and began to specialize in painting landscapes, beach scenes, and flower still lifes. Spicuzza taught for many years at the Milwaukee Art Institute and he received numerous regional and national awards. A lush, vibrant painting rendered in spring, Landscape with Trees very likely depicts apple blossoms in an orchard outside of Milwaukee.
