Artwork Description

This patinated relief shows Donato A. Cafarelli, Anthony de Francisci’s father-in-law. The brass plaque is part of a family series that the sculptor produced between 1920 and 1925. Donato came to the United States with his son, Domenico, about two years before Teresa Cafarelli, de Francisci’s wife, immigrated.
