About

A lyrical painting of a young woman shown nude and seated in an interior beneath the breeze of an electric fan. Certification of Authenticity stamped verso for Jerry Opper (American, 1924-2014). Born in Cleveland, Ohio, this California painter and printmaker moved to Los Angeles in 1933. Jerry Opper graduated from Hollywood High School and worked as a set painter in the movie industry while studying art at the Chouinard Institute. During the war, he was stationed in Colorado where he enrolled in the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center. After the war, Opper returned to Los Angeles where he worked again in the film industry. In 1947, Opper moved to San Francisco where he enrolled full time in the California School of Fine Arts, earning his diploma in June 1950. Opper exhibited widely and with success including at the Drawing and Print Exhibition of the San Francisco Art Association in 1950 and again in 1951 when he was awarded the Artists' Council Prize. His work was included in the International Biennial of Contemporary Color Lithography at the Cincinnati Art Museum and in the 1953 National Print Exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum. He also exhibited at numerous group exhibitions and, also, at solo exhibitions of his work including at the Lucien Labaudt Gallery and the Montalvo Art Center. Jerry Opper's work may be found in the permanent collections of the Brooklyn Museum and the Kirkland Museum of Fine and Decorative Art.
