Alphonse Palumbo (1890-1947) studied at the Art Students League in New York with Louis Mora and Frank DuMond. He painted a wide range of subjects during his life--landscapes and seascapes, urban scenes and rural scenes, people and animals.
Regardless of what he painted, Palumbo relied upon a singular straightforward style of painting. He was not really an impressionist, modernist, social realist, regionalist, or any other “ist”. Although his work was influenced by all of these then current styles, Palumbo remained true to his own artistic sensibilities.
Alphonse Palumbo exhibited at the National Academy of Design, the Society of Independent Artists, and the Allied Artists of America.
Paintings of comparable quality and size by Palumbo have gallery prices of up to $18,000.
