About

Larry Rivers (1923-2002) Modernist Male Figure Original Charcoal Mid 20th C. Rare charcoal portrait by American modernist painter Larry Rivers. Original charcoal on paper. Dimensions 17" x 22". The frame measures 29.5" x 34". Signed lower right. Very good condition. Figurative artist Larry Rivers was born in the Bronx in 1923 to Ukrainian Jewish parents, and was named Yitzak Loiza Grossberg. Rivers belonged to the second generation of the New York School of painters, although unlike most of his contemporaries he stayed away from abstraction instead preferring narrative paintings. Rivers attended Hans Hofmann's school for nearly two years. In 1949, he had his first solo show at the Jane Street Gallery, an artist's co-op in the Village. Rivers received favorable reviews and was invited to join the Tibor de Nagy Gallery uptown.
