Alfonso Ossorio, Oil on Masonite
Item Details
Description
Titled: "Fire and Ice". Oil on masonite abstract expressionist composition with heavy impasto. [Art: 32" x 25 1/2"; Frame: 35 1/2" x 29"]. Verso inscribed and dated, "ossorio / io.viii.'55". Bears labels from Betty Parsons Gallery, and Channel Thirteen Day Pass, dated May 14, 1982. Provenance: Studio of the Artist; Betty Parsons Gallery, New York, NY 1955; [...], Private Collection, East Hampton, NY. Overall good, light soiling throughout. Detailed analysis: Upper left quadrant: 1 1/8” loss to a heavy-impasto vertical black paint stroke. Upper right quadrant: 1 ¼” loss to a heavy-impasto black brush stroke. 1 ¾” vertical area of tenting with minor loss to brown/tan vertical brush stroke. Extreme corner tenting with small losses. Lower left quadrant: tenting and flaking with minor areas of loss. Lower right quadrant: Few areas of heavy impasto with tenting. Overall, good condition, commensurate with age and technique. From a conservation perspective, the work is remarkably intact, given the unorthodox use of oil paint in this thickness. In certain areas, paint is applied in thicknesses approaching ½” in depth.
