1980s Oil Painting, "Minnie," by Nicholas Africano

About

An intimate oil painting by Nicholas Africano (B. 1948) from 1982 titled "Minnie." Minnie refers to a character in Puccini's opera, La Fanciulla del West (The Girl of the Golden West) who was the owner of a saloon with whom all the male characters were in love. By placing "Minnie" isolated in the center of the painting, Africano created tension and ambiguity between the expressiveness of the figure and the stark simplicity of the monochromatic gray background. The viewer becomes part of the scene. Africano was associated with the New Image Painters, creating highly sculptural narrative works that feature isolated figures often in theatrical costumes. This eloquent work is a beautiful example from Africano's early period. Signed and dated on verso. Includes original label: Holly Solomon Gallery, New York. Original giltwood frame.
