Vallarino Fine Art's February Recent Acquisitions 2021
Please click here to view the catalogue of Recent Acquisitions.
NEW YORK, NY.- In January this year we began our Recent Acquisitions series of videos, each accompanied by a digital catalogue. We will continue creating these videos and catalogues every month in order to keep you abreast of our continued buying addiction!
In our February video we discuss two major works by John Stephan and Karel Appel, both monumental in size and completely opposite is style. In addition, we are presenting a large 1958 work by Byron Browne, an early 1951 Grid painting by John Grillo, one of Roger Browns large disaster earthquake canvases and a sculpture by Ibram Lassaw.
Behind me is Disc #1 1971 by John Stephan from the 1960s Hard Edge movement. Stephan along with Josef Albers both created concepts of color theory, Albers with his Homage to the Square and Stephan with his Disc Series from the late 1960s and early 1970s. Stephans Discs Series were unique without precedent and his color experimentation throughout, paralleled that of Albers.
Continuing with our Recent Acquisitions is a rare figural 1942 Surrealist painting by Walter Quirt, a 1967 work on paper by Norman Bluhm, an early 1958 Ab Ex canvas by Friedel Dzubas, a small gem from 1952 by Michael Goldberg and a large exquisite complex Wolf Kahn who recently passed away.
Karel Appel originates from the CoBrA group of artists formed in Paris after the war rebelling against hard geometry and restricted palettes. Their vigorously spontaneous and rebellious style coincided with the group of artists from the New York School. Their name originates from Karel Appel and two other founders from Copenhagen, Brussels & Amsterdam creating the moniker CoBrA.
Once again, I hope you have enjoyed our Recent Acquisitions video and please stay tuned as there is more to come.
