Works by Modern Artists
Jean Lurcat is best remembered as an innovator of modern tapestry.
However, the first half of his artistic career was devoted to
painting. In 1912 he moved to Paris where he frequented Picasso's
circle of friends. He founded the art review "Les Feuilles
de Mai" in which he published essays on painting doctrine.
Trips to Berlin and Munich, Spain, the Middle East, North Africa
and the Sahara in the 1920's further broadened his artistic influences.
He began to assimilate the ground breaking movements of that era,
Cubism, Expressionism, and Surrealism. His work can be found in
numerous museums including MOMA, Philadelphia Museum of Art and
the Musee Nationale d'Art Moderne in Paris. The framed portrait
of a rooster that we are offering measures 20" wide x 28"
tall. View is 18" wide x 26" tall. It is signed "Lurcat"
in the plate lower right. It is boldly signed in blue crayon at
the lower center. (Stock number 003Lurcat) $200.00
Albert Alcalay was born in Paris, France in 1917. He fought
with the resistance during World War II, was captured, imprisoned,
escaped, hid and was ultimately liberated by Allied troops. After
the war he moved to Rome where he met Kandinsky and became captivated
by abstract expressionism. He eventually settled in the Boston
area where he focused on the American city, steel structures and
heavy industry. His work has been exhibited at major art museums
and galleries around the world. He has also had a long and distinguished
career as a teacher. We are offering "Lights of the City,"
a mixed media work numbered 16 of 25. It is signed "Alcalay
1960" in pencil lower right. The piece measures 10"
wide x 8" tall. (Stock number 003Alcalay) $250.00
Daniel Lang was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1935. Mr. Lang's
mid-western roots and education belie his cosmopolitan world view.
His paintings have been called "intellectual autobiographies."
His dreamy landscape of the mind draws the viewer into a new "reality."
The piece we are offering combines a surreal vision with a wry
sense of humor. "Apples poised as Young Peonies," numbered
13 of 25 is a moody yet playful work. It is signed "Daniel
Lang " in pencil lower right. The piece measures 23"
wide x 17.5" tall. (Stock number 003Lang) $250.00
