Following is The New York Times obituary of Mario Schifano

Mario Schifano, 63, Avant-Garde Painter
Published: February 2, 1998
  
Mario Schifano, one of Italy's best-known contemporary painters, died on Jan. 26 at the Santo Spirito Hospital in Rome. He was 63 and lived in Rome.

The cause was a heart attack, his doctors said.

Mr. Schifano was born in Homs, Libya, in 1934. He moved to Rome with his family after World War II and began working as a restorer with his father at the Etruscan museum of Villa Giulia in Rome.

He began painting during the late 1950's and soon became one of the leading members of the avant-garde school that took its name from the Piazza del Popolo in Rome.
