1943-2005

 

Carlo Pittore (b. Charles Stanley, 1943-2005) was a prolific painter and internationally renowned mail artist who lived and worked in New York City, Southern Italy, and Bowdoinham, Maine. Over the course of his 40-year career Pittore created a prodigious body of work, adding his unique vision to the American figurative tradition. A pioneer of the mail art movement in the 1970s, he contributed pieces to over 1,000 mail art exhibitions and corresponded with such mail art luminaries as Buster Cleveland, Ray Johnson, and the iconic performance-artist, writer and publisher Bern Porter.

Pittore's work resides in numerous private and institutional collections, including the J. Paul Getty Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, the Smithsonian Institution's Archives of American Art, the Ruth and Marvin Sackner Archive of Concrete and Visual Poetry, and the Portland Museum of Art.
