Biography   Virgil Lo Schiavo

Best known for his large murals, the Italian-born Vergil (or Virgil) painted in the traditions of grand Italian fresco painters.  His murals can be found on the walls of banks, public buildings, private homes, churches and St Mary's Cathedral in Sydney.

In 1945 he won the Sulman Prize for his idealized mural Tribute to Shakespeare located inside the University of Sydney's Union.

Over time, three university walls were decorated by murals done by Lo Schiavo.  Another, in 1951, was a study of famous characters from the novels of Charles Dickens.

The third, his masterwork in 1971, was called Mankind and hidden among the multiple figures were fiery Newcastle BHP blast furnaces.
