Julio Vanzo was an artist born in Rosario, province of Santa Fe, Argentina. He descended from a family of artists of the Austrian Tyrol.
Vanzo presented his first exhibition in 1919, at the inauguration of the Witcomb Gallery in Rosario. In 1941 he was invited to a joint exhibition that featured Lucio Fontana, Domingo Candia and Emilio Pettorutti at the Riverside Gallery of New York City, and in 1945 he participated in the contest for a Guggenheim scholarship. In 1953 he authored a series of zincography prints based on the theme of the Argentine national gauchesque poem Martin Fierro, which were also exhibited in New York. During his last years he shifted to the topic of tango culture.
Vanzo was a collaborator of the art and literature magazine La Gaceta del Sur and the first secretary of the Juan B. Castagnino Fine Arts Museum (founded in 1937).
