Gaetano Pesce has donated this original ink drawing, created expressly for this charitable initiative. Measuring 8.5 x 11 inches, it is a one-of-a-kind and comes with a certificate of authenticity.


Born in La Spezia, Pesce’s half-century-long career has spanned architecture, urban planning, interiors, exhibitions, and industrial design. He has conceived public and private projects in the United States, Europe, Latin America, and Asia. In all his work, he is guided by one main principle: that modernism is less a style than a method for interpreting the present and hinting at a future in which individuality is preserved and celebrated.


Following his architecture studies at the University of Venice from 1958 to 1963, he participated in Gruppo N, an early collective concerned with programmed art patterned after the Bauhaus. He went on to teach architecture at the Institut d’Architecture et d’Etudes Urbaines in Strasbourg for 28 years, as well as at Carnegie Mellon in Pittsburgh, Domus Academy in Milan, Polytechnic of Hong Kong, Architectural School of São Paulo, and Cooper Union in New York City. He’s made New York his home since 1980, after living in Venice, London, Helsinki, and Paris.


Pesce’s work is featured in over 30 permanent collections of the most important museums in the world, including MoMa, SFMoMA, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Vitra Design Museum, Victoria & Albert Museum, Centre Pompidou, and Musée des Arts Décoratifs. He exhibits art in galleries worldwide. His award winning designs include the prestigious Chrysler Award for Innovation and Design in 1993, the Architektur and Wohnen Designer of the Year in 2006, and the Lawrence J. Israel Prize from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York in 2009.
