Ettore Cadorin (1872-1952), a native of Venice, Italy, immigrated to the United States during World War I to lecture on methods of protecting art from the ravages of war. After moving to Santa Barbara in 1925, he taught drawing and sculpture at the State Teachers College, which later became U.C. Santa Barbara. Among his best known works are the fountain and sculpture at the Santa Barbara County Court House.
