About

A pencil and oil painting by Larry Rivers. "Lions on the Dreyfus Fund, Inc." is a pencil and oil on cut wood and canvas painting, executed primarily in a palette of ochre, white and yellows by contemporary artist Larry Rivers. "Lions on the Dreyfus Fund, Inc." Rivers was at the height of his renown by 1964, having introduced found objects and imagery, including stencils and other forms of lettering, into his canvases. The composition of "Lions on the Dreyfus Fund" is at once complex and diffuse: striding lions, jostling letters, floating tails, and muscular brushstrokes achieve a lateral push and pull. Through its title and its legible content this work refers to the Dreyfus Fund, a mutual fund broker that has featured lions prominently in its advertisements and corporate logo. Signed middle right, "Rivers '64" Provenance: Marlborough Gallery, New York Private Collection, New York, acquired from the above in 1966 Private Collection, Washington, gift from the above
