This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Naples, Italy, Oronzio Maldarelli became a trained sculptor in classical* style of garden, funereal, and architectural decorations.  He was also a medalist*, working for Egleston Medals, and an art instructor as a faculty member at Columbia University, Beaux Arts Institute of Design, and Sarah Lawrence College.  Early in his career, his work was realistic, but as he grew older, it became increasingly abstract*.

Maldarelli immigrated when he was age nine to America with his parents in 1901, living in New York City.  Five years later, he began modeling lessons at Cooper Union*, and two years later enrolled at the National Academy of Design*, where his instructors included Ivan Olinsky, Hermon Atkins MacNeil, and Leon Kroll.  In 1912, he took additional art instruction at the Beaux Arts Institute of Design*, studying with Jo Davidson, Elie Nadelman, and John Gregory.

He was a member of the National Institute of Art and Letters*, which he served as Vice President in 1952; the American Artists Congress*; Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Advisory Committee; the American Academy of Rome as Trustee; and National Sculpture Society* in New York. In 1931 and 1943, he received Guggenheim Fellowships*, and in 1948, had grants from the American Academy of Art and Letters, and the National Institute of Arts and Letters.

His nude figure sculpture, Resignation, won him a one-thousand dollar prize from Fairmount Park Association's Sixth National Biennial Exhibition of Sculpture-in-the-Open-Air, sponsored by the Philadelphia Art Alliance in 1929.

Other exhibitions included Salons of America*, 1924; Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts* annual, 1927-34, 1943-64 (gold medal 1951; prize 1945, 1954, 1956); Midtown Gallery, 1933 (solo), 1935 (solo), 1948 (solo); Grand Central Art Galleries*, 1929, 1947; Sao Paulo*, Brazil; Society of Independent Artists*, 1940-42; Metropolitan Museum of Art, 1951; S. Guild; Paul Rosenberg Gallery, New York; Philadelphia Museum of Art; Art Institute of Chicago, 1941 (medal); Museum of Modern Art; Fairmount Park Art Association, Philadelphia, 1929 (prize), 1933;  Architectural League of New York, 1954 (silver medal), 1956 (silver medal); Whitney Museum of American Art. 

He died in that city at age 71 from a heart attack.
