This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is from Diane and Dominic A. Margiotti,  family members:

A painter and long-time co-proprietor of the Green Tree Inn in Evesboro, New Jersey, decorated with his brightly colored paintings, Anthony Sabatucci was born in Philadelphia and studied at the Academy of Fine Arts and Fleisher Academy, both in Philadelphia. Anthony Sabatucci was a student and prodigy of Cesare Ricciardi. Cesare Ricciardi began his formal art studies at the Philadelphia Sketch Club, before enrolling at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, where he received his most influential training under the instruction of Thomas Anshutz, Cecilia Beaux, Hugh Breckenridge, Robert Henri, and Leopold Seiffert. He later traveled to Paris for further studies.

When Sabatucci was six years old, his mother died, and his father married a woman only sixteen years old. She soon became pregnant and the baby, a girl, died, and her loss and that of her stepson created a permanent bond between them.

At a very young age, he started violin lessons and later played in the Haddonfield, New Jersey Symphony and the Germantown Symphony in Philadelphia and occupied first chair in both groups.

Dedicated to his step mother and following her wishes to open a restaurant of their own, he dedicated his time and life to their mutual success. He also took art lessons at the academies and private lessons from Cesare Ricciardi.  Anthony Sabatucci and Cesare Ricciardi would  accompany one another on paintings excursions where they developed a very bonding friendship that would last their whole life through. The teacher (Cesare Ricciardi) expressed to the student (Anthony Sabatucci) that his ability as an artist had far exceeded his expectations of him.  At one point he (Cesare Ricciardi) commented "that Anthony Sabatucci's imagination, ability and creativity as an artist would some day be recognized as great works of art". Anthony Sabatucci also studied at the Pennsylvania Academy Of Fine Arts and was a member of the Philadelphia Sketch Club along with studying under Cesare Ricciardi for many years.

At one point he nearly married, but his stepmother became so upset that he backed away from the union. He died in a nursing home at age 81 (his stepmother lived to be 100) and with the exception of a few paintings, his painting collection remained intact.

Many of his paintings are landscapes, but his subjects also include figures, portraits, and still lifes and range from snow scenes, the skyline of Philadelphia, and a ticker-tape parade in New York City. Occasionally he exhibited his work, but primarily it was a form of recreation and relaxation, and often completed a painting in an hour. One of his paintings was sold to Leopold Stokowski, conductor of the Philadelphia Orchestra.

Many of Anthony Sabatucci’s artworks portray a specific and emotional time in his life.

With the death of his biological mother at an early age and the dependence upon his adoptive mother, it impacted him with such a force that he began to portray his emotional feelings through his paintings which manifested itself more through the years.

Anthony Sabatucci put his life into his artwork. He focused on the quality and creativity of his art work.

He said he didn’t want his paintings to look like a decorated birthday cake. He wanted to express his creativity and wanted to be a free spirited painter. This was more evident in his later years.

In the course of his career Anthony received many awards. Some of his awards include: The prestigious Leonardo Da Vinci medal, The Haddonfield Art Show, The Philadelphia Art Alliance, and many local area showings where he typically won first or second place. His work has also been shown at the Graphic Sketch club.
