About Domenico Gnoli (painter)

  • Domenico Gnoli (3 May 1933 - 17 April 1970) was an Italian painter and stage designer, born in Rome.
  • He studied stage design at the Accademia di Belle Arti, and began a short stint designing stages, for which he was well received.
  • Following this, he spent the better part of his life in New York City, working for magazines such as Sports Illustrated, and Fortune, where he found favour with art director Leo Lionni.
  • He is known most for his work "Orestes or The Art of Smiling". He made a series of surrealist drawings, one of which - depicting a fish in a snail's house on a couch - is often confused with Edward Gorey's work.
