Angelo Ippolito was an internationally exhibited painter, renowned member of the New York School of Abstract Expressionism, and beloved teacher. Born in Italy in 1922, Ippolito came to New York at age 9. In 1952 he helped found the Tanager Gallery on East Fourth Street in Manhattan. A year later the gallery moved to East 10th Street, where it showed Robert Rauschenberg and Jasper Johns, among many other artists. Ippolito produced a body of work including oil on canvas, works on paper, and assemblages, all distinctive in their lyrical color, light and compositional rigor. His paintings are in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art.
