This is a picture of my great great grandfather on my mother's side of the family. He was a fisherman. He had commissioned the artist Ciro Cozzolino in Rome, to paint his portrait so he could give it as a wedding gift to my great great grandmother, since he was at sea most of the time. It has been handed down my mother's side of the family and I have it now in my possesion. It is guessed to have been painted around 1900's if not earlier. The artist was born in Italy in 1876 and died in 1946 (age 70). My Great Great grandfather last name was Stein, but that is all I know about him at the moment as my mother and my grandmother didn't know much either. I hope to get it appraised someday soon.

Welcome to Mariposa, Ca - this was a mural on the side of a building - that unfortunately fell due to fire that ravaged an historic block.
In January, during a short trip to Paris, I visited the Louvre. Among the many highlights for me were Michelangelo's sculptures know as the Dying Slave
