Details: 7pcs New York School SALVATORE GRIPPI STUDIES IN INK 1953-1955 Artist Signed Figurative Abstract Expressionist Artwork Decorative Original Art Unique

This group features 7 ink studies by noted New York School artist Salvatore Grippi. Five pieces bear Grippi's signature and some are dated between 1953 and 1955.

The pieces range in size; the largest piece measures approximately 11" x 14" and the smallest measures approximately 9.5" x 6".

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 these works and other interesting art pieces in person.
Condition / Notes: These pieces display a typical range of age and wear indications. Some works may show some light toning or have signs of minor marginal creasing.
