Louise Cella Caruso has made numerous presentations throughout the tri-state area. Her background combines bio-nutrition, certification in art and antique appraising, and a degree in communications. She has continued research at museums in the United States and Europe including the Metropolitan and Philadelphia museums of art, the Prado, Louvre, Uffizi, and more.
