  • The Ralph Fasanella Collection and Archive at the American Folk Art Museum | American Folk Art Museum
    really successful is when you come out of it The painter has to come out of it himself Ralph Fasanella Over the course of Fasanella s fifty two years as a practicing artist his work evolved from the angst and radical politics of his youth through the social and political engagement of the 1960s and 70s and into more personal and nostalgic reflections on his childhood as in the Iceman Crucified series and other depictions of healthy civic and cultural life In all of this his work was bound to memory Fasanella s imagery is in a sense documentation His paintings are documents of a certain time and place that the artist wanted to keep as part of the cultural consciousness to tell stories and instruct the masses The stories he told were ones of political upheaval as in McCarthy Press the monotony of a work a day life as in Subway Riders or relished moments of leisure and play as in Coney Island The elaborate geometries within his compositions helped to make sense of his densely arranged canvases and hold together their narrative structure In creating these artworks Fasanella was able to remind himself and others where they came from and where they are going I may paint flat but I don t think flat Ralph Fasanella In all of his work Fasanella strived to depict collective experiences from a wide perspective The masses of people the panoramic formats and long angles the exhaustive detail all contributed to making Fasanella s world multidimensional and diverse as a rule He was able to convey familiar New York City scenes political events and immigrant stories so well because they weren t only the products of observation but a vital part of the artist s personal lived experience Related Materials See Ralph Fasanella s curriculum vitae See a list of books and films from Ralph Fasanella s personal library Image WATERGATE Ralph Fasanella 1914 1997 New York City 1976 oil on canvas 60 x 90 in American Folk Art Museum New York gift of Eva Fasanella and her children Gina Mostrando and Marc Fasanella 2005 5 5 The Ralph Fasanella Collection and Archive at the American Folk Art Museum Since the early 1990s the American Folk Art Museum has acquired more than one hundred works by the self taught painter Ralph Fasanella many of them gifts from the artist and his family In 2005 the Estate of Ralph Fasanella made a donation of seven large scale paintings to the American Folk Art Museum augmenting the institution s holdings with some of the most distinctive examples from the artist s corpus Between 2009 and 2013 the estate gave the museum a major gift of 102 preparatory drawings and sketches along with a significant archive of Fasanella s papers establishing the largest public repository of the artist s work The archive a vast resource for scholarship includes correspondence sketchbooks notebooks photography professional records of note source material audio visual media publications and clippings The
