About

A horizontal seascape oil painting in vibrant red, blue, tan, and green by Sally Michel Avery. This work, like much of Michel-Avery's, straddles the line between representational and abstract imagery. Waves crashing against the cove under a cloudy evening sky are outlined in simplified and interlocking shapes, creating a harmonious composition that seems to transcend the scene itself. The work is in very good condition, and comes in a light maple frame. It is hand-signed by the artist. Sally Michel Avery (1902 - 2003) Quiet Cove, 1974 Oil on canvas board 11 ½ x 15 ½ in. 17 ⅝ x 21 ⅞ in. Signed lower right: 'Sally Michel 1974' Provenance: Jack Wright Gallery, Palm Beach, Florida Private Collection, Palm Beach, Florida Private Collection, USA Sally Michel Avery was an accomplished painter and illustrator from Brooklyn, NY. She spent much of her early career as a commercial illustrator for publications such as Macy's and The New York Times, financially supporting her family as her husband, the now iconic American Modernist painter Milton Avery, struggled to find collectors in his early years as a painter. Sally and Milton developed a shared style of abstract forms and vibrant colors, while still favoring representational subject matter. They were close friends with artists such as Mark Rothko, Adolph Gottlieb, and Barnett Newman, and their daughter, March Avery, is also a prolific and successful artist. Sally died in 2003 at the age of 100, and her work has gained popularity in recent years along with that of her husband.
