Previous remarks still stand.
Don Fabricant held a Fulbright Fellowship to Italy during 1962, afterwhich he taught at the then Philadelphia (Museum) College of Art. He returned to Italy during 1984 or thereabouts.
"near the end of his life" -- how dreadful; so he's gone, then.
Did he ever live and teach in Brooklyn, NY? If so, I knew him as my teacher when he was very, very young, and constantly mistaken for a h.s. student tho' in his 20's. That was LONG ago. But an unforgettable character, as you can see.
I have an extensive private collection of the best of Don's large abtracts painted near the end of his life. They are posted for viewing pleasure.
I knew Don fairly well and am fairly familiar with his work from the 60's and 70's.
I have a painting done by Fabricant in the late 60's of panaramic view of the Clositer's/ Fort Tyron Park, in NYC it's in grey tones, was looking for a bit of information on Mr. Fabricant's works
