This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in the Bronx of New York, Ronald DeNota was a painter of celebratory scenes of New York City, especially genre and landscape.  With his long-time partner, Lucy Burns, he lived in Greenwich Village and also had a studio in Tribeca.  He died in 2007 from Parkinson's disease.

DeNota was raised by foster parents on a farm near Swan Lake in the Catskill Mountains.  HIs mother, a professional ball room dancer, was abandoned by his father, and, unable to support her son, found a home for him with friends, Mabel and Arthur Kilcoin, who provided a secure environment.  He attended the local high school and the Oakland Military Academy, where he learned to paint.  He was in the U.S. Army during 1946 and 1947, and then worked in a Post Office in New York City to earn money.  His paintings began to get attention, and encouraged, he enrolled in the Art Students League.

In the 1960s, DeNota opened a studio on West Broadway and Murray Street, near 'his' post office, and several years later, with painter friends opened a storefront gallery with studios called the Subject Gallery at 159 Prince Street.  In the 1970s, he became one of the founders of The Street Painters, a group that exhibited their social realist artwork at the Subject Gallery.

Albert Amateau, Obituary: "Ronald DeNota, 78, 'Subjectivist' artist of Jane St."
