Details: 6pcs Artist Signed SALVATORE GRIPPI INK STUDIES Abstract Expressionist New York School Decorative Home/Office/Studio Original Artwork Unique Vintage

All pieces of this group of studies in ink bear the signature of its creator, noted New York School artist Salvatore Grippi. One piece is dated 1953.

The largest piece measures approximately 9.75" x 14.25". The smallest piece measures approximately 10" x 13.5".

Worth Auctions is pleased to be offering a number of rare 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. Worth Auctions is pleased and proud to be offering Grippi’s works to the public. 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. It is fitting that these pieces are being shown and sold here in Ithaca, where Grippi taught and maintained a studio for most of his career, while they are also visible to collectors all over the world.

Please attend our live sale to view this piece and other interesting artwork in person.

Condition / Notes: These pieces display a typical range of age and wear indications. Some pieces may show some light toning or display minor marginal creasing.

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: $6.50
