Vincenzo Loria (1850 – 1939) was a well-known watercolor artist from Salerno, Italy. After studying at the Academia di Belle Arti (Academy of the Fine Arts) in Naples under the direction of Domenico Morelli, Loria dedicated himself to oil and watercolor painting with a focus on Italian genre scene and landscape subject matter. Loria’s paintings became highly prized and sought after not only by the Italian upper-class but also by foreign collectors. His works have been exhibited both in Italy, including museums in Turin, Milan, Venice and Naples, and other museums and galleries worldwide (Russia, London).
