"At the Theater," Late Art Deco Oil Painting by Kummer, 1950

About

This stunning example of Art Deco-Mid Century American surrealism was painted by Erwin Kummer, a widely-known Chicago painter who exhibited widely in the 1940s at the Art Institute of Chicago and the Illinois Society of Fine Arts. Painted in vivid reds, corals and whites, all in perfect condition, Kummer's juxtaposition of gloved hand, mask of tragedy and ballet dancer is masterful. In the background, he includes a stage, spotlight and rows of theater seats. The painting is signed and dated (1950).
