Delaware Backstory: Remembering artist Charles Colombo

Mar 06, 2015 945

Delaware recently lost a notable artist with the passing of Wilmington painter Charles A. Colombo Sr., whose work spanned more than a half-century. Colombo, a popular artist and featured artist at the prestigious Hardcastle Galleries, died Feb. 16 at the age of 87.

At the time of his death, Colombo was offering six of his original watercolors, ranging from $3,000 to $25,000, through, which also sold prints of many of his works.
