Juror statement: Raffaele Abbate's "Power of youth" drawing has soul. We were struck by the intensity of the boy's gaze and attitude. The choice of paper and the simplicity of the composition add to the strength of the work as does the thoughtful rendering of the light and shadows on the face and hair. May 28th, 2009.
