Abstract

Profile of artist Imero Gobbato of Camden, who left Italy after World War II and eventually settled in Maine, where he has lived for 42 years. After experiencing Mussolini's Fascists, Gobbato's artistic career has been devoted to inventing a utopia called Humbravana, which he has imagined and rendered in detail. He designed boats and illustrated children's books before making his living as a painter, and is a skilled printmaker, musician, and composer, although he insists he is not good enough to perform publicly. He says he sees "awful things in this world, so [he makes] a supreme effort to bring more joy."
