Painting of 3 women by Adolf Dehn. Painting: 7.5"x 9.5" in a frame 10.5"x 12.5".(From Wiki)Adolf Dehn (22 November 1895 – 19 May 1968) was an American lithographer. Throughout his artistic career, Dehn participated in and helped define some important movements in American art, including Regionalism, Social Realism, and caricature. Two-time recipient of the Guggenheim Fellowship, he was known for both his technical skills and his high-spirited, droll depictions of human foibles.Label on reverse from the ACA Gallery.(From the ACA website):"American Contemporary Artists (ACA) was established in 1932. Since its inception the gallery has been committed to supporting the leading artists of the day. It was founded by Herman Baron and artists Stuart Davis, Yasuo Kuniyoshi and Adolf Dehn. ACA, at the time, was one of only three galleries in New York primarily dedicated to the work of American artists. Over the years ACA's breadth and scope expanded greatly. Today the gallery's collection specializes in Modern and Contemporary, American and European paintings, drawings and sculpture. ACA continues to fulfill its mission to support and exhibit some of the most important contemporary and historic artists in the field.ACA's pioneering interest in progressive American art was established in exhibitions featuring, and often introducing to American audiences, the work of Stuart Davis, Rockwell Kent, Lee Krasner, Alice Neel, Barnett Newman, Pablo Picasso and Charles White. In 1935, ACA hosted the inaugural meetings of the American Artists' Congress, the influential precursor to the Federal Art Project and Works Project Administration; federal programs that aided American artists and funded public art".
