The Raw Essence of Carlo Pittore

The Raw Essence of Carlo Pittore
2015 | Directed by Richard Kane

The Raw Essence of Carlo Pittore is part of a series of films titled Great American Artists launched in 1999 as Maine Masters. Carlo Pittore (b. Charles Stanley, 1943-2005) was one of the original founders of the Union of Maine Visual Artists, the sponsor of this film series. As his friend the poet Bob Holman says in the film, “Carlo led a merry band of artists” in the 70s living in the yurts of Bowdoinham. Carlo was an internationally renowned “mail” artist and the postcards he sent around the world and exhibited at over a thousand shows are extraordinary.

It is with the hope that the release of this short will encourage others to help us fund the feature length version of this very complex artist. Contact mainemasters1@gmail.com for more information about this continuing project.
