About the artist:

Richard Volpe:  A twentieth century American printmaker, painter, playwright and actor, Richard Volpe studied both art and writing techniques at Ohio Wesleyan University, Denver University, The University of New Mexico and at the University of Nevada.  Volpe first gained national attention for his writing and, in 1966, he received the Samuel French Award for one of his plays.  He first experimented with etching in 1965 and, during the following years, created a number of works of art in this medium, most dealing with landscapes and animal depictions.  The artist spent considerable time both working and living in the Pacific coast regions.

During his career, the art of Richard Volpe has been the subject of more than twenty-five one man exhibitions. Today his fine art is included in the permanent collections of the University of Delaware, the Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art and the “Smithsonian American Art Museum“.

    Was the Richard Volpe piece sold at auction, in December?

      I still have the large Richard Volpe piece. The mid century work did not sell in the December Ebay auction; I think it was partly because the weight of this large painting (with custom wood frame and glass) generated significantly higher shipping costs than usual. Thank you for your comment!

    In 1965, Richard Volpe’s one act play, “The Swingers” won the Samuel French award. The Swingers was first produced in December 1966 at Nevada Southern University’s Little Theatre. Robert Burgan directed. As Chairman of the sponsoring organization, Students for Political Action, I served as the Producer. Volpe was a great man.
