Modernist Cubist Painting Titled "Philosopher" Dated 1958 by Peter Paul Sakowski



We recently acquired a number of paintings from the estate of Peter Paul Sakowski (1915-2000) of Holyoke, Mass. His style tended to vary from an illustrative graphic quality to the more fractured cubism he adopted during the 1950s and 60s. He was at heart a folk artist rooted in the WPA era traditions of social realism that he of came of age with in the 1930s. This portrait in an abstract cubist style is titled "Philosopher" and is dated 1958.
