About the artist: After studies at the Scuola Tecnica and the Belle Arti in Carrera, Italy, Peppino Mangravite left his native country for the United States.

He also taught at the Art Institute of Chicago, Columbia University, the Avon School in Connecticut, Sarah Lawrence College, Ethical Culture School in Connecticut and served as Director of Art Education at Fielding School in Washington, DC. It was teaching that brought Mangravite west to Colorado during 1937 and 1938 when he taught at the Broadmoor Art Academy (forerunner to the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center) in Colorado Springs. He returned to the Broadmoor Academy during the summers of 1946 and 1947 when he served as the Acting Director. He also instructed at the Fountain Valley School in Colorado Springs.
