Born in Stockton, CA on March 18, 1903. Of pioneer stock, Oscar Galgiani's grandfather settled in Stockton in the 1850s. As a teenager Oscar took painting lessons from his aunt, Anita Galgiani Miller, and at age 24 enrolled at the CSFA where he was a pupil of Stackpole, Piazzoni, Randolph, Macky, Hartwell, and Poole. He became a close friend of Nelson Poole and often accompanied him on sketching trips into the Mother Lode country, Mono Lake, and the north coast. His finest project was the two large murals in the Stockton Court House. A lifelong resident of Stockton, he taught locally for many years and was the recipient of several honors in his home town including the mayor's proclamation on Feb. 1, 1976 as Oscar Galgiani Day. He died in Stockton on Nov. 25, 1994. His work includes hundreds of landscapes and about 66 portraits.

This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Oscar Galgiani, known for landscapes, portraits and murals, was born and raised in Stockton, California. His aunt, Anita Galgiani, taught him to paint as a teenager and when he was older, he went on to study at the California School of Fine Arts in San Francisco.

It was there that Galgiani became friends with Nelson Poole, one of his instructors. The two of them often took trips together within California to sketch the countryside. Although his studies kept him moving around, Galgiani always stayed connected to his home town of Stockton, returning home to teach and to work on local projects.

One of his most recognized works is a pair of murals he created for the Stockton Courthouse. He also exhibited his work, which included landscapes and portraits, in the Crocker Gallery in Sacramento and at Stanford University.
