Augustine Palmisano, born 1876 in Sicily, Italy (Cefalu, Termini to be exact). He emigrated to the USA, became a doctor in Baltimore, Maryland, and died in 1927. He is my maternal great-grandfather. These are three of his paintings that have been in my family (I inherited the one on the far right). I am interested to know if any other paintings exist outside of my family and if anyone has heard of him as an artist? To the best of my knowledge, he painted as a young man when living in Italy but perhaps also painted when he moved to the USA. Family oral history says that as a child he would get in trouble for drawing on the sides of buildings in Cefalu because he had no canvas or anything else to use.
