Historical Narrative: As per Josephine Del Deo (1976): Residence of the painter Victor de Carlo (1916-1973). Obituary: "Victor de Carlo was born on March 5, 1916 in New Haven, CT, from parents of Russian and Italian heritage. Resisting the urgent press of his parents to pursue "practical" matters, he followed instead his compelling desire to become a painter. Victor's training as a painter included study at the Corcoran School of Art, Washington D.C. in 1946 and later that year he began work under the well-known muralist and fresco painter Jean Charlot, in the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center. Upon returning East in 1948, he continued his study of painting at the Art Student's league in New York. He later spent nearly two years in Paris and traveled from there to Marrakesch Morocco. Return to Europe, he spent a considerable amount of time in both France and Italy where he worked for a while at the Academia di Belle Arti in Florence. After serving during the war in the Pacific theater, he returned to Europe and soon met and married Sibylle Schneider. Victor returned to new Haven, CT with his new family in 1954, where he continued to paint and teach. He exhibited widely in galleries and museums including the Wadsworth Athenaeum, Hartford; Boston Museum; American Gallery, NYC; Denver Museum; Joslyn Memorial Art Museum, Omaha, Neb; Lyman Allyn Museum, New London, CT, Silvermine Guild of Artists, Silvermine, CT; and more. Victor de Carlo continued to work and paint in Provincetown where he had moved permanently some years ago with his wife and three children." House was floated over from Long Point.
