"Male Nude with Slate and Sand," Early Painting by Gaylord Flory, 1945

$4,800

About

Surrounded by an abstract series of planes in mottled slate and sand hues, this strong and confident nude figural painting was executed by Gaylord Flory when he was only 26, while recovering from wounds received while serving in World War II. After the war, Flory studied at the Art Students League in New York, the Academie Grand Chaumiere in Paris and the Institute D'Arte in Italy, later becoming an important figure in the New York City art scene. His boldly-colored, Matissean paintings were widely exhibited at museums such as MOMA in New York, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia, and the Detroit Institute of Arts in his native state.
