About

"Barn Near Big Cedar Lake #781" is an original sepia conte crayon drawing on paper by Sylvia Spicuzza. The drawing depicts an old barn surrounded by wooden fencing. The fence cuts diagonally across the foreground, then picks up again on the right side of the image as it goes behind the barn. The building is build into a slope with three doors of different sizes raised slightly off the ground and one window on either side. Art size: 9 1/2" x 12 1/2" Frame size: GET FRAME SIZE Born in 1908, Sylvia Spicuzza was the daughter of noted painter Francesco Spicuzza. Sylvia devoted herself to teaching art to the students of Lake Bluff Elementary School in Shorewood, WI. During this time Sylvia produced a magnificent body of work that was undiscovered until her death. Sylvia's work is rich, diverse and fascinating collection of drawings, watercolors and prints from the 1920's to the 1990's. Her style ranges from early figurative drawings to regionalism, art deco, lyrical abstractions of every conceivable subject (both real and imagined), as well as figurative paintings that reflect the work of Picasso and Ernest Max in the 1930's and 1940's. Biomorphic and organic, Modernist images are presented with Sylvia Spicuzza's own unique sense of style, humor and fantasy.
