The year before Don Manfredi drew Skull, the New York Times singled him out in its review of an exhibition at the Weyhe Gallery: “The star here is young Don Manfredi, aged 16 . . . highly imaginative and very expert in his novel geometricizing, so to speak, of landscape.” Although he continued to paint and draw for the rest of his life, by the mid-1950s he was designing sets for Broadway productions as well. Those who met him after he arrived in Rochester in 1968 remember him as a conservator of paintings; MAG was among his clients. A few years before his death, Manfredi moved to the Italian Riviera, where he felt he would once again have time to pursue his own art.
