This volume collects Peter Sanfilippo’s major works from two periods of his life: 1940-1945, and 2006-2007. Though separated chronologically by sixty years, these paintings hastily rendered on the battlefields of World War II North Africa and Southern Italy are thematically linked to his charcoal etchings of Long Island’s tranquil North Shore. There is beauty to be found in all corners of life, even amidst the depravity and violence of war and the innocuous simplicity of trees, earth and running water. This visual wisdom is both Sanfilippo’s vision and legacy. For the first time, Sanfilippo’s early and later work can be compared side-by-side. The optimism and keen eye of his war paintings foreshadow the vitality and maturity of his natural landscapes. This humble portrait presents the life and career of a uniquely American artist at the top of his game.
