Original Oil Board Painting SALVATORE GRIPPI Untitled

Lot 2011 Details

Description

Details: Original Oil Board Painting SALVATORE GRIPPI Untitled 1959 Small Vintage New York School Still Life Abstract Expressionist Modernist Contemporary Art Ithaca DeKooning Nevelson Kline MoMA

Salvatore Grippi (American, b. 1921-2017)
Untitled Still Life (1959)
Oil on board (9.5" x 7.25")

Worth Auctions is pleased to be offering a number of rare early works by the important New York School painter Salvatore Grippi, who worked and exhibited alongside the likes of de Kooning, Nevelson, and Kline during the heyday of Abstract Expressionism in the 1950s. 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 his work has been on view in his hometown. Says Evan D. Williams, a AAA-certified appraiser and Director of Fine Art for Worth Auctions, “It's a privilege to be curating and bringing Grippi's work to market. He was a significant figure in postwar abstraction and his work from this period has graced the walls of MoMA, the Whitney, and
the Met but has seldom appeared at auction. I think it's fitting that the pieces will be shown and sold right here in Ithaca, where Grippi taught and maintained a studio for most of his career, while also being visible to the entire world of collectors through our online platforms.â€
Condition / Notes: This painting shows some signs of age and wear including mild to moderate discoloration, surface abrasions, etc.

The stated shipping cost in this listing will apply only to addresses within the continental 48 states. Within those parameters, the shipping cost for this lot will be: $16.50
