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, can readily be considered rare solely based on its size. It is painted on a large sheet of found foam core which accounts for the frayed edges of sections of the painting. It is unframed and must be handled with care before framing.
