About this item

Ralph Fasanella was a self-taught artist who created a stunning and diverse body of work depicting labor history, American politics, and urban working-class life. As he had no formal training of any kind, his works bear a visceral and direct relationship to the culture of the streets, tenements and sweatshops. His 1957 painting, New York City, at 50 x 110 inches, is one of the most visually arresting images of New York City in the history of American art, effectively combining two artistic approaches to depicting the city: the street scene and the skyline. In 2002 the New-York Historical Society, in association with the New York State Historical Association, hosted a major retrospective on the life and work of folk artist and labor activist Ralph Fasanella.
