2016 A G Rizzoli Wall Calendar


When the trove of Achilles Rizzoli’s renderings were “discovered” in 1990, the works of this nearly forgotten artist showed the usual effects of neglect and age. But they were clearly grand visions from a keen draftsman. Rizzoli (American, 1896–1981) secretly created tributes to friends and family in architectural representations that developed an elaborately mapped expo. Few attended his annual living-room exhibitions displaying these tributes, but many who did were also honored with their own finely crafted representational works that proclaimed his deep appreciation for their kindness. Most never knew he had personified them in striking architectural form.
