Pinto (1905-1966) was part of a Philadelphia-based family of artists that were collected by Albert C. Barnes, who awarded Pinto prizes to inspire his modernism through travels to Europe, Corsica and Africa. Woodmere Director/CEO William Valerio talks about the artist (whose work, Summer Beach Scene, is pictured at top), his work and Pinto as a trans-Atlantic link between Philadelphia and European modernism.
