Antonio Petruccelli (1907-1994) began his career as a textile designer. Petruccelli became a freelance illustrator in 1932 after winning several House Beautiful cover illustration contests. His work eventually appeared on the covers of Fortune, The New Yorker, Collier’s Today and House Beautiful magazines. ‘Tony was Mr. Versatility for Fortune. He could do anything, from charts and diagrams to maps, illustrations, covers, and caricatures,’ said Francis Brennan, the art director for Fortune. Over the course of his career, Petruccelli won several important design awards. Antonio Petruccelli died at age 87 on November 11, 1994.
