Appreciating Artist Anthony Ravielli

April 15, 2016

Anthony Ravielli was an artist for books, magazines, and advertising. I’ve found a couple examples of his paintings, but the vast majority of it is drawn in an engraving style that appears to be done on scratchboard.

He worked for many years with Sports Illustrated, drawing “how-to” illustrations for a range of activities, such as golf, baseball, and fishing. Many of these were later collected into books that are prized possessions of lovers of these sports.

He also illustrated many educational children’s books on subjects of science and biology.

Ravielli passed away in 1997 at the age of 86.

  1. If you have seen his paintings can you please describe what kind of material the painting was done on?


    • I’ve not seen any originals by him, only reproductions. The paintings I’ve seen appear to be watercolor and/or gouache, probably on illustration board.
