Louis Bosa – “Waiting”
Louis Bosa born in 1905, in Codroipo, Italy immigrated to the U.S. at age 18 after studies at the Accademia della Belle Arti in Venice and became an American citizen. He then studied under John Sloan of the Ashcan School at the Art Students League in New York. A distinguished painter, Louis Bosa's work has been likened to that of artists ranging from Pieter Breughel the Elder to John Sloan. Bosa painted for the Works Progress Administration and the Whitney Museum. He taught at the Cleveland Institute of Art, the New York Art Students League, the Parsons School of Design, Syracuse University, and the University of Notre Dame at South Bend, Indiana. His work was recently exhibited in the reception area of Matossian Eye Associates Doylestown, PA office to be enjoyed by patients and visitors. “Waiting” won the People’s Choice Award from Matossian Eye Associates in the interactive portion of this exhibit as the favorite painting of the patients who voted.
