Abstract
Luigi Capello (a.k.a. Cappello) (1843-1902), painter, theater set designer, and embroidery pattern maker was active in the province of Quebec and the state of New York from the time of his arrival from Europe c. 1875 to the time of his departure in c. 1898. In spite of his non-native origins, during a period of two decades, Capello established a studio for theatrical design and embroidery, taught drawing at a Jesuit College, executed approximately twenty-three religious paintings for churches in Quebec and the state of New York, as well as completed numerous fresco decorations for five chapels and churches. His list of works contains a dozen landscapes and portraits which he exhibited at the Art Association of Montreal and the Royal Canadian Academy. The author outlines Capello's biography and analyzes both the artist's surviving works, and discuss his missing and destroyed art.
