REMO FARRUGGIO

Remo Michael Farruggio (1904-1981) was born in Palermo, Sicily and emigrated with his family to the United States at the age of 12.  He and his family settled into New York City where the artist  attended public school during the day  and enrolled in the NY Academy of Design in the evenings. 

In 1922 Farruggio attended classes at the Educational Alliance where he befriended many important artists of the day including Motherwell, the Soyer brothers, and Chaim Gross.  He finished his education with the Beaux Arts School and the Industrial Arts School where he was taught by artist Abraham Bogdonove.  Soon after, with paintbrush in hand, the young artist set out to explore the nation and embrace his new citizenship.

Farruggio created his artwork surrounded by the generation of the Abstract Expressionists, yet the artist  chose to pursue an aesthetic direction all his own that brought him international success.   From 1939 until 1981 he was honored with over twenty solo shows at prominent galleries in New York, Italy, Mexico and across the USA.

During the 1930's Great Depression, Farruggio was given the high honor of being one of only  two painters selected by the Works Progress Administration (WPA) to do a one man show of his paintings at the influential Julien Levy Gallery in 1939. "Basin Street," a picture from the show, was bought by the Metropolitan Museum for their permanent collection.

Having earned his title as an important early modernist, Remo Farruggio is continually included in Who was Who of Art in America (Soundview Press). His work can be found in many prestigious museums today, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the National Museum of American Art at the Smithsonian and the Corcoran Gallery in Washington DC.
