Grippi, Artwork, Engravings, etc.

This catalog features a variety of items and artwork, with the bulk of the catalog focused on our next session from the estate of Salvatore Grippi. In addition to numerous finished paintings, many lots offer works on paper, studies and assorted items from the artist’s studio will also be sold. Featured in this sale are a number of rare early works by the important New York School artist Salvatore Grippi (1921-2017), who worked and exhibited alongside the likes of de Kooning, Nevelson, and Baziotes during the heydey of Abstract Expressionism. In 1968, Grippi established the art department at Ithaca College, where he taught until 1991. In 2011, he was honored with a solo retrospective at Cornell University’s Johnson Museum of Art, marking the last time until now that a substantial body of his work has been on public view in his hometown. The sale showcases several large canvases and a variety of works on paper. Additional lots in this catalog offer a selection of artwork and prints by other artists.
