Luigi Lucioni was an Italian-born American painter and printmaker best known for his detailed portraits, still lifes, and landscapes of the Vermont countryside. Born on November 4, 1900 in Malnate, Italy, his family immigrated to New York in 1911 and eventual settled in Union City, NJ. Though he never finished primary school, Lucioni was admitted to Cooper Union at the age of 15, where he studied painting under William de Leftwich Dodge. At that time he was also working for a Brooklyn engraving company and soon after attended the National Academy of Design, where William Auerbach Levy introduced him to etching.
