2001 - A Stock Odyssey (1986) is a prophetic look at the NYSE predicting the first time the Dow Jones would go over 2000 points. The painting was unveiled in December 1986 and the Dow Jones reached 2001 on January 8, 1987. Historically, it records the greed which led to the imprisonment of Ivan Boesky and Denis Levine. The colors used in the painting are typical of Cenedella's style - cool and bright at the same time with reds, greens, and pinks, the whole scene basking in a yellow, victorious glow. Literally hundreds of figures participate in the incessant action taking place on the trading floor. To include this much detail in an art work and still be able to make sense of it, characterizes the artist. Other famous people depicted are Ace Greenberg, Bear Stearns, Sandy Weil, Salomon Smith Barney, Muriel Siebert, Ronald Reagan and even Bill Cosby.

As a New Yorker, Cenedella has seen it all (and then painted it). From subway paintings, street scenes, famous landmarks, and Broadway shows, Bob managed to freeze moments in time and preserve them for our viewing pleasure.
Commissioned by the infamous restauranteur, Sirio Maccioni (1932-2020), Cenedella's Oil on Canvas depicts the elegance and spirit of one of the world’s most preeminent restaurants in its original setting. It is a visual feast, a family portrait including more than 100 celebrities and political habitués over the years such as Henry Kissinger, Richard Nixon, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Philip Roth, Paul Newman, Tony Randall, Sophia Loren, and Barbara Walters.
“Yes Art!” was Cenedella’s farewell to art when he decided to join an advertising agency to escape the commercialism of the art world. Predicting that this gimmick-filled show would draw more attention than any other show that year, “Yes Art!” was exhibited in 1965 at the Fitzgerald Gallery. “Yes Art!” was subsequently taken seriously and imitated by many artists, yet without the humor and commentary present in Cenedella’s work.
