Sergio Roffo is inspired by the work of American traditional painters such as Inness and Beirstadt, among others. Born in San Donato, Italy, in 1953, Roffo is a 1977 graduate of the Vesper George School of Art located in Boston, Massachusetts.
Roffo’s representations of coastal scenes reveal a luminous masterful feeling that gives the viewer a precise sense of value and perspective. His captivating depictions of the New England landscape have been included in a variety of museum exhibitions and have earned him many national awards, including the prestigious Grumbacher Gold and the Yankee Sagandorph presented by Yankee magazine.
In 1994, Roffo was the winner of the Massachusetts Duck Stamp Competition. He holds the honor being one of the youngest artists to be designated a Copley Master by the Copley Society of Boston. An elected member of the Guild of Boston Artists, Roffo’s work is included in many private and publicly owned collections and has been selected for inclusion in numerous publications.
