The portrait of Eleanor Roosevelt by Sylvia Davis Patricelli.

The Sylvia Davis Patricelli Fine Arts Foundation, a sponsor of a Granby high school scholarship for a graduating student pursuing a post-secondary education in the creative arts since 2018, is now recognized as an IRS 501c3 charity. This establishes the foundation as a non-profit that recognizes donations made by individuals, grants or corporations as tax deductible contributions.

Mrs. Patricelli was an internationally acclaimed portrait artist from Sydney, Australia whose first exhibition in the U.S. was opened by First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt and sponsored by the Wadsworth Atheneum, WTIC and G. Fox and Company in Hartford at Centinel Hill Hall. Among the notable portraits completed by Patricelli were Eleanor Roosevelt (right), Beatrice Fox Auerbach and General Douglas MacArthur. See to hear Mrs. Roosevelt’s speech at the opening of the exhibit.
