Abstract Expressionist Painting, Circa 1950s

$1,695

About

An anonymous but intriguing abstract painting, ca. 1950s. Its densely layered brushwork is strikingly similar to the “controlled chaos” compositions of certain early New York expressionists, most notably Joan Mitchell. The dark elements of its core lend depth and a poetic energy to the swirling ribbons of color, making this a work for a more sophisticated devotee of abstraction.
