Portraits of Belleville

The artist, Michael Accunzo, painted”Portraits of Belleville,” which reflect the country-like quality of  Mill Street, the old charm of the Alpha Theater, and the unusual design of the Town Hall clock. Most of all, the portraits reflect a strong and confident community within itself and its people.

Michael Accunzo was a Belleville resident with great artistic skill and careful attention to detail. His representational approach yields colorful, accurate depictions of local landmarks. He paints in the American tradition of proud artists who are eager to share their personal visions of their towns. He was commissioned by the Library Board of Trustees to paint these Belleville portraits in 1986, marking the naming of the Branch Library for an exceptional Library Trustee, Mrs. Richard A. Shafter.
