Longtime Tulane art professor Pat Trivigno died January 30. He was 90.

An accomplished painter, with work in the Whitney, Guggenheim, Ogden and other important collections, Trivigno also left a significant legacy as a teacher. He exerted a gentle but profound influence on thousands of students at Tulane, including such prominent New Orleans artists as Adrian Deckbar and Dona Lief, and Times-Picayune art critic Doug MacCash.

Another of his former students, artist Jacqueline Bishop, has this remembrance.
