About

Internationally known artist Purvis Young (1943- 2010) was recognized as a master of painting 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. Those works of art now adorn the walls of private collectors, public institutions and museums throughout the world.



This painting of three angels but showing only two within the artwork, is painted on canvas then mounted to found wood. Then the artist, Purvis Young took found wood planks and applied them, framing his artwork. Extra canvas material overhangs the frame, which is another intention of the artist. Signed and purchased directly from Purvis Young in 2003. There is picture wire on the backside for easy hanging.
