Alphonse Palumbo
Pierrot and Ballerina Art Deco Interior Scene



This is a suggestively subtle 1929 oil on canvas painting featuring a pierrot and ballerina in a quiet 'behind the curtain' circus moment. This large scale stylized art deco work is mournful and gay all at once, evoking all of the tensions of jazz age culture. Italian-born Alphonse Palumbo studied in New York at the Art Students League under Louis Mora and Frank DuMond. He exhibited at the Allied Artists of America, the National Academy of Design, and the Society of Independent Artists. Sight Size 41" x 36" Framed 45" x 40"
