About the Artist: Florence Veronica Mercolino Graziano Recognized for her artistic talent at an early age, Florence Marziano was painting in watercolor and pastels by the time she was seven and acquired her first set of oils at the age of ten. After high school, she attended the Columbus College of Art and Design and later developed her mature style by studying with Robert Brackman, Robert De Lamonica, and John Havannes at the Art Students League of New York. Her work is identified with this influential institution, as she was included in The Hundredth Anniversary Exhibition of Paintings and Sculpture by Artists Associated with the Art Students League of New York at the Kennedy Galleries in March, 1975. Marziano augmented her studies with classes taught by Henry Hensche in Provincetown at what he called the Cape School of Art. This artist was a fervent advocate for Impressionism as the true twentieth-century style, but it may be that the model of the studio classrooms was the biggest influence on Marziano. Beginning in 1962, she taught art privately at her own schools and started the Art Workshop in Flemington, NJ, in 1974. Advocating for this approach, she contributed “The Studio Art Workshop” to the September issue of American Artist. Living in Plainflield, NJ, Marziano held some of her own openings there, which appear to have drawn attendees among minor celebrities of the 60s and 70s. Noting such an event, gossip columnist Jack O’Brien noted that a Marziano opening was “where the artistic elite meet to flee Fun City.” In New York City, the Press Box Restaurant had a Marziano so named for the artist’s paintings, and records show that she was commissioned to do portraits of Hildegarde, Mrs. Jimmy Durante, and Henri Nosco, conductor of the NBC Symphony Orchestra. During this period, she had her most notable honor as one of the American artists who exhibited at the Salon de la Societé de L’École at the Musée d’Art Moderne in 1971. Although Marziano held sway in her New Jersey studio, she visited the art colony of Taos, and three of her paintings were in the recent estate sale of artist Julian Robles, one of the Taos Six. ©David Cook Galleries, LLC
