Ralph Eugene Della-Volpe’s more than 70-year career as an artist and educator was as vibrant as his paintings. A semi-abstract painter, his bright colorist works feature the elements of water, sea, sky, beach, garden, and an occasional anonymous portrait. Radiant color and a sense of atmosphere and emotion characterize his canvases.
Born in New York in 1923, Della-Volpe attended New York City's prestigious National Academy of Design. Upon his return from military service Della-Volpe studied at the Art Students League in New York City for four years, eventually taking a position at Bennett College in Millbrook, New York as a teacher of drawing and painting and as the institution’s first artist-in-residence.
Della-Volpe exhibited widely and was a popular lecturer on art at colleges, universities, and galleries across the country. His work is represented in such collections as the National Gallery of Art, New York Cultural Center, the Art Students League, The Slater Museum in Norwich, Connecticut, the Treasury Building in Washington, D.C., and the Library of Congress (Pennell Collection).
