From an early age until death stilled his brush, Stanley Meltzoff painted. As a teenager, even his early work showed signs of prodigious talent. During WWII, he served as an illustrator for The Stars and Stripes newspaper, traveling throughout Italy and visiting many of the world's great art bastions. While a soldier, his renderings improved dramatically from simple one-subject sketches to more complex compositions. Returning to America as a mature and worldly man of 28, Stanley's career as an artist began to flourish, and he never looked back.
The selection below is but a representation of this talented man's vast output and range of subjects. More imagery will be added as it becomes available.
