This is a nice Industrial oil on canvas mounted on board, by Anthony J. Sisti (1901-1983) Buffalo, N.Y. It measures 32” x 24”. Anthony Sisti was a painter, born in New York City in 1901, and moved to Buffalo with his family in 1911. He studied at the Albright Art School with Urquhart Wilcox, the Royal Academy in Florence from 1925-1929, and earned a Doctoral Degree in painting. He also studied in France and Germany. Along with painting, Sisti also professionally boxed, which he used as a means to fund his studies and exhibitions. He even used it as a way to return to Buffalo. After traveling with Ernest Hemingway, he found himself with not enough money to return, so he boxed in Rome and won the fare he needed. From 1918-1930, he fought in over 100 professional fights, and known as “Kid Tony”, won the Amateur Golden Gloves Bantam Weight Championship of New York State. He established the Sisti Galleries in Buffalo in 1938. He also befriended Charles Burchfield, purchasing many of his paintings to exhibit in his galleries. In 1979, he donated 25 of Burchfield’s paintings to the Burchfield Center, along with eight drawings, and a number of his own paintings. Currently, in the Burchfield there is a gallery section named after Sisti, and many of his works are included in the permanent collection.
