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
or Austrian Rudolf
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.
