Scarpitta, Salvatore (American sculptor, 1919-2007)

Note: Born in Brooklyn, but raised in Los Angeles. He graduated from Hollywood High School, then attended the School of Fine Arts in Rome. During WWII, while in the United States Navy, he worked recovering art looted by the Nazis. He was active in Rome after the war, then relocated to New York, where his work was shown by Leo Castelli. His early works were wall-based sculptural canvases made from materials he found in Army surplus stores. Later in his career he made free-standing sculptural works based on the forms of automobiles and sleds.
