David Adickes
Textured Abstract Impressionist Study for Beach and Boat

$1,800

About

Highly textured abstract impressionist painting by Texas artist David Adickes that resembles a boat and beach scene. It is signed by the artist in the bottom left corner. The piece is nicely displayed in a gold and black frame with a cream matting. Dimensions Without Frame: H 9.5 in. x W 7.5 in. Artist Biography: Born in Huntsville in 1927, Adickes graduated from Huntsville High School in 1943. Nearing the end of World War II, at age 17 he joined the Air Force and regularly traveled to France. “I always liked art and was always drawing in the margins of my book,” Adickes said. “But being in Paris where there are galleries and museums on every corner—as just a small town kid from Huntsville, Texas—that was my turning point.” After completing his service, Adickes returned to Huntsville and earned his bachelor’s degree from Sam Houston State University. He then studied art with artist Fernand Leger in France for two years before moving to Houston to open his own art school.
