Vatican newspaper pays tribute to artist William Congdon
Catholic World News - July 18, 2012
L’Osservatore Romano has published an article paying tribute to US artist William Congdon (1912-98) a century after his birth.
Art critic Alfredo Tradigo writes:
The 36-year-old William first travelled to Italy in 1948 and found a horizontal city in Venice, a new light for him: “a light that comes from the East.” An aesthetic experience which then turned into a spiritual one, awaking in him a slow conversion until he finally “surrendered himself” as an Episcopalian to the Catholic Church ten years later.
