About

Painted by Frealon Bibbins (American, 1926-2013) circa 1976. Certification of authenticity, verso, with stamped wax seal. A substantial 1970's abstract evoking graceful, oceanic forms and comprising fluidly superimposed and adjacent, diaphanous layers of scarlet, rose, lilac, and grass-green against a variegated sunshine-yellow field. This listed California artist, author and musician lived and painted in Alameda and also had a distinguished career with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra (1943-63). Additionally, he was a long-time clarinettist with the Woodwind Quartet. In his paintings, he used music as inspiration for his forms of abstraction, incorporating flowing sequences of form and a harmonically integrated palette. Bibbins was also an honorary member of the Nepal and Tibet Philatelic Study Circle and the author of several monographs on Tibetan philately. We are pleased offer a substantial work from the artist's middle period.
