Give to Cenedella (1978) is actually a painting about Cenedella's stepfather, Robert Cenedella Sr. Robert Cenedella Sr. was a successful writer for radio scripts, and worked exclusively with the legendary Broadway star, Helen Hayes, in the 1940s-50s; however, in 1953, Robert Cenedella Sr. was blacklisted and accused of being a Communist by Senator Joseph McCarthy (R, WI) during the infamous McCarthy Hearings. Cenedella Sr. refused to take the oath under general principal, and as he stated "I am an American, I do not have to answer your question." Unfortunately, that left Cenedella Sr. in financial straits for several decades, and as the Artist depicts in this painting, it lasted well into 1978.
