"People on the Beach," by Victor DeCarlo (±1970). Courtesy of the Provincetown Art Association and Museum.Victor DeCarlo (1916-1973) was, as were so many in Provincetown, a product of the Art Students League of New York. He also studied with the muralist Jean Charlot at the Fine Arts Center in Colorado Springs, at the Corcoran College of Art and Design in Washington and at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Firenze. After serving in the Pacific Theater during World War II, he returned to Europe, married Sibylle Schneider, then came back to his native New Haven. The DeCarlos bought this property from Antonio and Patricia L. Silva in 1965.

9 Point Street, Provincetown (2013), by David W. Dunlap.In the show Brothers in Art in 2007, the Provincetown Art Association and Museum exhibited the works of Victor DeCarlo and his older brother, Charles. “One is struck by their special camaraderie,” Josephine Del Deo wrote. “From their earliest days as young artists in New Haven, Victor and Charles led separate artistic lives together, each contributing to, but not overwhelming, the other’s individual vision. That they managed so beautifully in this special rapprochement is a testament to their mutual respect and understanding. Often in disagreement about approach, they yet agreed to disagree.”

The owners of the property today are Thomas DeCarlo (b 1953), Madeleine DeCarlo, and Sybille DeCarlo (b 1956). • MapHistoric District SurveyAssessor’s Online Database ¶ Updated 2013-08-03

  1. Madeleine and Sybille (who changed her name some time ago to Sibella) are Tom’s twin sisters.

    Before the DeCarlos owned the property, I believe, a family by the name of Simmons lived there. Manny and Doris were the parents and there were three sons: Simmie, Peter and David.

  2. Nicely done. We are honored to be a part of your project. I’m assuming you know that 9 Point is also a floater. I’m not sure of the year the house was constructed. However, we to have a plaque and the house was included in the monument museum display.

    Thanks again.

    • Thank you so much for you information and your kind words. Based on your comment, I have added a little floater plaque near the top of the entry.

    • Hi Tom,
      My name is Jeanne and I live in Colorado. This will sound very strange, but was your Mother once a patient at Newton Wellesley Hospital? I once knew a Sibylle DeCarlo, as I worked there. If yes let me know and I can reply with why I ask!


  3. Thank you for sharing! Lauren, sorry to confuse you with my name. All call me Sibella, but for all official, government-related issues, I did not legally change my name, which remains Sibylle DeCarlo. I apologize for causing confusion. Have a great summer!

  4. Hi there! I just purchased a painting by Charles DeCarlo and would love to know more about it. Would one of you be able to contact me please?
