Max Finkelstein Modern Op Art Painting

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

1915-2016
Mr. Finkelstein was a Los Angeles based artist who worked in multimedia sculpted and machine made art.
This piece is an example of his multimedia art.
It is made of enamel on a perforated aluminium screen with aluminium frame with linen mat.
The screen shows some minor scrapes or dings.
The size of the image itself is roughly 7" H x 10" W
The image is best seen from the side, as in walking towards it. Unlike most images where the viewer stares directly in front it.
Unfortunately, this one is not signed, but it was purchased at his estate last year.
We've also added two images of similar pieces for reference that were consigned at LA Modern auctions.
There were only a few these made.
It's a fun piece of modern optical art.
