Two (2) Sterling Boyd Strauser (Pennsylvania, 1907-1995) oil on board still life paintings depicting a vase of flowers rendered in a heavy impasto technique against green beige backgrounds. Signed and dated "Strauser 1970" lower left and lower right. Housed in carved gilt wood frames. Sight - 13 1/4" H x 10 1/2" W. Framed - 20" H x 17" W. Provenance: Nashville, TN estate. Biography (courtesy Askart: The Artists' Bluebook): Sterling Strauser was born in Bloomburg, Pennsylvania. A self-taught artist, he began painting in 1926 in a near impressionist style which evolved into an assertive Klee-like modernism and later into a form of expressionism. Strauser and his wife, Dorothy, were also collectors and promoters of folk art. Retrospectives of his work were held at Lyzon Gallery in Nashville, Tennessee in 1996 and the Reading Public Museum in Pennsylvania 1999-2000.
