Biographical Sketch

Born June 26, 1932 in Italty, Negri attended the Aurel Kessler Academy in Buenos Aries, Argentina from 1953-1954 and the Art Students League in New York from 1959-1960. Negri said that the Aurel Kessler Academy first introduced him to art which was a whole new universe for me .

Negri says he loves illustrating children's books because children are so pure in appreciation and perception. They have no inhibition or discrimination to cloud their minds or hearts .

F.N. Monjo's book The One Bad Thing About Father , which included illustrations by Rocco Negri, was awarded The New York Times Outstanding Book Award for 1970.
