Morgan Russell
Portrait of a Woman

1926

$15,000

About

This charming portrait of a young seated woman from 1926 was most likely done in Paris. It incorporates broad areas of flat vibrant color that speak to the influence of Matisse and Fauvism. Yet clearly, the American Morgan Russell was a profound thinker and innovator in his own right. Along with Stanton Macdonald-Wright, Russell was a founder of Synchromism. This was the seminal non-representational art movement that began in 1911. It paved the way for a logical progression to abstractionism in art for years to come. Rothko, Pollack, de Kooning and Kline whose paintings fetch seven figures and more all owe a debt to Morgan Russell who preceded them by 25 years. Provenance: The estate of the Artist, Freeman's Auction, Private Collection South Florida - Two partially intact gallery labels, one with an inventory number, on verso suggest that the painting was with art galleries or museums. - Unframed, relined.
