About the Book
Over 100 images of Lake Como paintings by Jerry Fresia along with essays on painting.
I studied painting in the studio of William Schultz, who in turn, studied with Robert Brackman. From Brackman we can trace a direct line, from student to teacher to Claude Monet. It was within the studio system of teaching, then, that I was taught both the practice and philosophy of French Impressionism. I received my PhD in political science from the University of Massachusetts in 1982. I taught at several colleges and universities and wrote two books on American politics. I have also written extensively on painting. I exhibit and sell my paintings in my own art gallery (FRESIA Galleria d'Arte) in Bellagio, Italy. I also organize painting classes as well as produce art books and painting videos.
