Stanley Walter Galli was born in San Francisco, CA on Jan. 18, 1912. Galli's youth was divided between California and a ranch in Nevada. At age 12 he received a two-year scholarship at the California School of Fine Arts (San Francisco) and later studied in Los Angeles at the Art Center School. His illustrations appeared in Country Gentlemen, Sports Afield, McCalls, Reader's Digest, True, and Saturday Evening Post. He designed 26 postage stamps for the USPO. Since 1970 he had spent several months of each year in Italy where he maintained a studio in an ancient farm house in Tuscany. Before his death he took up printmaking including etching and serigraphs. His prints and paintings were executed in a style of carefully designed realism with subjects varying from wild life studies to early California during the Mexican rule. His works won many awards and medals during his long career. He died in Kentfield, CA on April 25, 2009. Source askart.com
