Mangalore, Feb 5: St Aloysius College, on Saturday, observed the death centenary of Antonio Moscheni, the Italian Jesuit painter, who painted the chapel of St Aloysius College in Mangalore and two other churches in Mumbai and Cochin.

Former rector of St Aloysius Institutions, Dr Leo D’Souza, who spoke on the contributions of Moscheni said that the Jesuit brother had a brilliant imagination. While most painters keep a model or see some object before they paint, Moscheni had nothing but deep and intense imagination beyond comprehension. Every painting of Moscheni is simply magnificent, said Dr Leo pointing out that none of them carried his signature.

Eminent artist Jyoti Sahi inaugurated an exhibition of the paintings of Moscheni.

St Aloysius Institutions rector Fr Francis Serrao, Jesuit provincial Fr Vijay Kumar Prahbu and Joseph Alvares were present.

Earlier, Mangalore Bishop Aloysius Paul D’Souza offered a thanksgiving Mass.
