Antonio Cirino (1888-1983)

How time flies when you are off the grid! I just finished a large appraisal of Rhode Island artists and wow…the Providence art scene is just amazing from 1850 to present day.

Antonio Cirino (1888 – 1983) was a colorful and confident artist, teaching at RISD and a lifetime member of the Providence Art Club. Cirino amused many and enraged others in his lifetime.

One of the little known fact…Cirino established a scholarship at the Rhode Island Foundation for Rhode Island art majors pursing art careers. Spread the word!
