On May 18, 2009, The New York Times published an obituary for Stein that largely recounts the artist's association with the legendary New York jazz scene. Starting in the late 1950s, Stein painted a full sized wall mural at the Village Vanguard, the famous jazz club in Greenwich Village. The NYT obit links to the interview with Philip Stein that was conducted in February 2004 - and now archived on this website. The Spanish language website, Mundo de Hoy, published an obituary on the passing of Estaño. Read an English translation of the obit, here.

This website will continue to showcase the stirring artworks of Stein, the American social realist painter. It is the premiere online gallery for his art and legacy, as well as an international educational resource for artists, students, and art lovers.
