The Pines of Rome
Italian Landscape Oil Paintings
Carol Anne Mazzotta
Carol Mazzotta’s landscape paintings are studies in the depth of the natural,
colors of the rolling valleys, mountain villages, city alleys and hillside steps, of Rome and
northern Italy. The regions of Tuscany and Rome, and indeed their traditions and cultural
history, are places close to the heart of the artist – her husband Giuseppe is a native of Italy
and Professor of Italian Literature at Yale University. Her color palette of refined earth-tones,
clear blue skies and purple shadowed clouds brings forth the warmth and elegance of
architecture and countryside.
Ms. Mazzotta received her Masters of Philosophy in French Literature from Yale
and her B.A. from Tufts, after studying Extra-Mural painting at Cornell. She also received her
Masters in Studio Art and her K-12 Teaching Certificate from Southern Connecticut State
Ms. Mazzotta is a volunteer art instructor at Fellowship Place, New Haven;
and a volunteer
liturgical artist at Saint Rita’s Church in Hamden. Until 1999, she was a an art teacher in area
parochial and public school systems, and in the 1980’s an adjunct professor of Drawing at
Southern Connecticut State University.
