~  Bruno Croatto (1875-1948)  ~
 

          Bruno Croatto studied art in Munich during the early 1990s and returned to Italy eventually settling in Rome in 1925. Around that time he became interested in the still life genre due to his admiration of 17th Century Dutch art. Similar art was produced by German artist Rudolf Dischinger or Austrian Rudolf Wacker.

           Croatto was apparently an independent artist working as a modern Classicist. His art anticipates the work of Contemporary Realists like Claudio Bravo and John Stuart Ingle. Some of his work falls into the category of Illusionistic Magic Realism.
