Biography from Williams American Art Galleries:
Peppino Gino Mangravite, painter, lecturer, lithographer, writer and teacher, was born in Lipari, Italy in 1896.  He immigrated to the United States at the age of fourteen with his father, settling in New York City.

He had already completed six years of study in Italy at the Scoule Techiniche Belle Arti.  Once in the USA, he studied at Cooper Union, Broadmoor Art Academy with John F. Carlson and the Art Student’s League in New York with Robert Henri.  The so-called romantic artist was deeply involved in teaching art and got his first teaching position at the Hansen School of Fine Arts in New York in 1918.

During the summer in the 1920s Mangravite ran several art camps in the Adirondacks for both children and adults.  In 1926, he moved to Washington D. C., where he taught at the Potomac School for two years.  Mangravite was drawn back to New York where he continued to teach at Sara Lawrence College, Cooper Union, the Art Students League and Columbia University.  He spent a year as the head of the art department at the Colorado Springs Fine Art Center and taught for two years at the Art Institute of Chicago. 

Concentrating on “the subtleties of human relationships,” Mangravite helped define the American Scene movement, which dominated the contemporary American art scene between 1927 and 1945.  The multi-talented artist contributed articles to numerous publications including, The Arts, Progressive Education, and American Magazine of Art to name a few.

The College Art Association’s Committee for the Study of the Practice of Art Courses asked Mangravite to serve as chairman from 1943-44.

Mangravite passed away in Westport, Connecticut in 1978.

Biography from David Cook Galleries (M-Z):
After studies at the Scuola Tecnica and the Belle Arti in Carrera, Italy, Peppino Mangravite left his native country for the United States.

Once in America, Mangravite continued his studies at the Cooper Union Art School and the Art Student’s League in New York. He later returned to instruct at both schools. He also taught at the Art Institute of Chicago, Columbia University, the Avon School in Connecticut, Sarah Lawrence College, Ethical Culture School in Connecticut and served as Director of Art Education at Fielding School in Washington, DC.

It was teaching that brought Mangravite west to Colorado during 1937 and 1938 when he taught at the Broadmoor Art Academy (forerunner to the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center) in Colorado Springs. He returned to the Broadmoor Academy during the summers of 1946 and 1947 when he served as the Acting Director. He also instructed at the Fountain Valley School in Colorado Springs.

Mangravite contributed to several publications including Progressive Education, The Arts, and American Magazine of the Arts. He was member of the Board of Directors of the Artists Equity Association of New York City in the late 1940's and early 1950's.
