This 1981 century colorful drawing of a manis by Pasquale Patrick Stigliani (1926-2003), a New York City painter and poet. He was an independent artist trained under the principles of New York's Art Student's League in the 1950s. Stigliani was inspired by Post-Impressionist landscapes and Central Park, the realism of the Ashcan School's still lifes and self-portraiture, and German Expressionism's emotional release and focus on strong lines. Stigliani was a dedicated Upper West Side artist who painted as passionately as he lived.
