Details: 5pcs New York School EARLY SALVATORE GRIPPI PRINTS 1952-1955 Artist Signed Mythological Intaglio Etchings Engravings Figurative Abstract Expressionist

These 5 intaglio prints, etchings, and engravings are early works by noted New York School artist Salvatore Grippi. All of the pieces save one are signed by the artist and dated between 1952 and 1955.

The prints range in size; the largest piece measures approximately 21.75" x 17.5" and the smallest measures approximately 11.5" x 9.25".

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 prints and other interesting artwork in person.
Condition / Notes: These pieces show nicely displaying only some typical indications of age and wear including light toning and marginal creasing or chipping.
