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 is an original painting on a kitchen cabinet door, signed by the artist and mounted under glass.
