About

Signed lower right, 'ZEV' for Daniel Albert Harris (American, 1914-1986) and dated "1952-1953". A dramatic, Mid-century cityscape showing numerous figures, both concealed and partially-revealed, dispersed in a neo-classical townscape beneath a vibrant sunset. Born Daniel Harris, and adopting the name of Zev, Harris studied at the Masters Institute of the Roerich Museum in Hungary and at the National Academy of Design. He was invited to exhibit in the Abstract & Surrealist Art in America exhibition at the San Francisco Museum of Art in 1944. After working in the United States for eight years, Harris moved to Europe in 1953, changing his name to ZEV, which means 'wolf' in Hungarian. He then worked and exhibited in Paris and, later, in Spain and Italy where he focused his creative energies primarily on large-scale sculpture.
