Salvatore Grippi Etching THREE FIGURES ONE WINGED 1955

Lot 2094 Details

Description

Details: Salvatore Grippi Etching THREE FIGURES ONE WINGED 1955 Artist Signed Original Early Drypoint Intaglio Fine Print Decorative Artwork New York School Art

This etching bears the signature of its creator, notable New York School artist Salvatore Grippi. The piece, one of Grippi's earlier works, is entitled "Three Figures, One Winged" and dated 1955.

The etching measures approximately 18" x 12.75".

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. This was the last time that Grippi's work was displayed in his hometown - until now. Evan D. Williams, an AAA-certified appraiser and Director of Fine Art at Worth Auctions, says “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.â€

Please attend our live sale to view this piece and other interesting artwork in person.
Condition / Notes: This piece shows exceptionally well displaying only a typical range of age and wear indications.
