Portrait of Leopoldo (Leo) Mascioli with children, Maria, Loretta, and Daniel - solo in inglese

This is an original toned black and white portrait of Leopoldo (Leo) Mascioli and his children, Maria, Loretta, and Daniel.  Leo is wearing a black overcoat over a white shirt and dark-coloured tie, a white scarf, and black pants.  His shoes are also black.  His hair is combed and parted neatly to the right.  He is staring off-centre with a slight smile on his face.  He has a mustache. His left hand is resting protectively over his son's left shoulder.  His son, Daniel, is dressed in a matching set of dark-coloured jacket and shorts.  He has on a white frilly scarf, black tights, and black boots as accessories.  He is starting off-centre and his face is expressionless.  His left hand is clasping his right and they hang in front of him.  The older daughter, Loretta, is sitting down on a chair, also looking off-centre, and also with her hands clasped together resting on her lap. She is wearing her short hair tied half up and half down.  Her black dress is mid-calf length and has a fancy black bow at the chest.  Black tights peek out from her knee-high two toned boots.  The third child, Maria, is leaning towards her big sister and smiling off-centre.  Maria's right hand is hanging onto Loretta's right arm.  Maria has a dark coloured dress with white stripes on the sleeve cuffs.  A white frilly scarf hanging from her neck and she has a big bow on her hair. Her hair is long and styled similar to Loretta's. Maria is also wearing black tights and a pair of two-toned boots.  The family is in a studio with wooden floors and an outdoor landscape image as the backdrop.

Leopoldo (Leo) Mascioli of Timmins was interned during World War II at Camp Petawawa.
