Helen Stein
"Modernist Nude" Mid Century Bold Colorful Abstract Nude Painting Oil on Canvas

Circa 1950

$6,000

About

A strong modernist oil painting depicted in the 1950s by Russian, American painter Helen Stein. Mostly known for her abstract figures on canvas, this piece is a wonderful representation of her nudes with bold use of color, shape, and form. Stein was very close with artist Marsden Hartley who lived in Gloucester in the '30s. She began exploration, painting side by side near Cape Cod in the summers with Hartley. Art measures 52 x 40 in Frame measures 52.5 x 40.5 in Helen was apart of many important exhibitions throughout the states and has made a powerful impact in the fabric of the artistic community in the early 20th Century. She began her artistic training at the Art Students League where she studied with, among others, the modernist, Max Weber. She continued her training at the Cooper Union in New York City and later moved to Paris where she seems to have immersed herself in the abstract and modern techniques which had captured that artistic city at the beginning of the twentieth century. Upon her return to America, she was residing in New York but spending an increasing amount of time in Gloucester, Massachusetts where she became part of its modern movement. She was living in that community through the 1930s when other American Modernists, Hans Hoffman, Adolf Gottlieb, Mark Rothko, Barnett Newman, and Milton Avery, to name a few, called Cape Ann their home. PROVENANCE: Lilac Gallery Collection. Signed lower left. This original artwork includes a Certificate of Authenticity issued by the Gallery. The piece will be stamped from Lilac Gallery on its verso.
