Viviano, Emmanuel G.(American, 1907-1980)
Emmanuel Viviano, a sculptor, painter, and printmaker, extensively worked with animal imagery and allegory. Viviano’s work can be characterized as representational/realistic with elements of the Arts and Crafts Movement and classical Greek sculpture.
Viviano received very little formal training, yet developed his practice extensively as an artist-recipient of the Federal Arts Project. Early in his career, he served as an apprentice in the art department of an advertising agency, and later was an assistant to Edgar Miller, a sculptor in Chicago. Together, they worked on the Animal Court project for the Jane Addams House. Viviano credits Maillal, Alfeo Faggi and Eric Gill as influences. The Art Institute of Chicago, the Chicago Society of Artists, the Detroit Institute of Arts, and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, among others, have held exhibitions of his work.
