Carl Nicholas Titolo is an American painter and educator. In his work, Titolo seeks to represent the beauty of Italy. His poetic compositions juxtapose figurative and impressionistic interpretations of the Italian landscape, creating a space that acts directly upon the psyche. On the subject of his work revolving Tuscany, Titolo has said, “I want someone … to look at an image [a painting] … and feel like they have been to all of Tuscany… which has nothing to do with a specific house, but has to do with the smell and the music and the sound of the imagery.”
Titolo’s work is in the permanent collections of the Cranbrook Institute in Detroit, the Arkansas Art Center and the Mulvane Art Center in Topeka, Kansas. For his work, he has received awards from the the Richard and Hinda Rosenthal Foundation, the National Academy of Design and the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
