About

Internationally known artist Purvis Young (1943-2010) was recognized as a master painter by the art world. An "outsider" artist, Young was self-taught and self-educated. He substituted a lack of formal education with intensive reading and study and was knowledgeable and sophisticated about the history of art. His work was as prolific as it was unique, especially when you consider he painted on just about any found object. Young's art is widely collected and can be found in many private collections, public institutions and museums throughout the world.

Horses were one of Young's favorite subjects for paintings. This abstract painting of horses on a background of vibrant Kelly green is exceptional and a size that is rarely available for sale. It is painted on a large sheet of found plywood which accounts for the frayed edges of the painting. It is unframed and signed lower center.
