Paul Maxwell
Modern Abstract Expressionist Blue Still Life with Bottles Painting

1966

$1,650

About

Abstract blue still life painting of bottles on top of a table. Signed and dated by the artist in the bottom left corner and currently displayed in a gold floating frame. Dimensions Without Frame: H 24 in. x W 28 in. Artist Biography : Paul Maxwell was born in Frost Prairie on September 17, 1925. When Maxwell was nine, the family moved to Bastrop, Louisiana, where he completed high school. Maxwell went on to graduate from Principia College in Elsah, Illinois, in 1950 with a BA in art, followed by graduate work at Claremont College in California. Maxwell was a modern artist and sculptor who developed a technique for using stencils to create thickly textured and layered surfaces, as well as objects he patented as “stencil casting” but that later became known as “Maxwell Pochoir.” He was also known for creating the “Max Wall” in the West Atrium of the Dallas Apparel Mart; though demolished in 2006, it can be seen as a backdrop in the science-fiction movie Logan’s Run. His work is highly abstract and often consists of some kind of grid—a form that is non-hierarchical and illustrates a major theme of his work. Maxwell died on July 10, 2015.
