Eliot Fitch Bartlett
Kneeling Figure in Yellow

1945

$2,950

About

A haunting expressionist exhibited fine art painting, dating to 1945, executed by the Connecticut-born artist Eliot Fitch Bartlett shortly after his return from military service in World War II. This was gallery exhibited and sold in an mid-late 1940s show at RoKo Gallery, NYC, which specialized in the work of emerging New York City-based modernist artists. The abstract image evokes a pieta scene with a kneeling figure in the foreground about to enter the embrace of a ghostly figure whose profile repeats four times across the image, giving the appearance of a slowly bowing head. Oil on illustration board with notations on the verso, the image measures 17 1/2" x 14" in original wormwood mid-century modern frame measuring 24" x 20" Verso features notations displaying the artist's name and address, the year, this was sold, and the RoKo address and stamp.
