Large Impressive Abstract Painting of Horses on Blue by Purvis Young

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 favourite subjects for paintings. This abstract painting of horses on a vibrant blue background is exceptional and of a size that is rarely available for sale. It is painted on a large found sheet of plywood and is unframed. Signed lower left.
