Press release

For over forty years, Edward Castiglione made a life’s work of drawing and painting in his New Haven studio. He showed his art only rarely, and little of it during the last two decades. This exhibition is an anthology made up almost entirely of that unseen achievement, with its extraordinary range of painterly skill and compelling subject matter. With influences ranging from Caravaggio through Anselm Kiefer, his unique vocabulary has long deserved to be more widely known. It is finally presented here through the generosity of the Estate of Edward Castiglione and the John Slade Ely House.

This exhibit was curated by Stephen Kobasa and Paul Clabby.
