$906

About

Offered is a pencil signed and numbered 55/250 Leo Russell Modernist abstract graphic print in bright yellow, purple, white, gray and black. The piece is framed in a blond wood and plexiglass frame. Even though this piece is considered abstract, Russel certainly took his cues from the likes of Georges Braque with the Cubist art movement and Marcel Duchamp with the Futurist art movement of the late 19th century and early 20th century. Russell's piece combines different views of objects or figures together in the same piece, resulting in works that appear fragmented and abstracted while also depicting the energy and dynamism of the subject in the work. His use of bright color is evident in most of his pieces. For the companion piece and additional art works We are located at 2303 Portsmouth Houston, Texas 77098 Russell was a teacher through the WPA program in NYC. His own works are considered in the "Ashcan" school of social realism. He is best known for his globe design for the beginning of the CBS show and "As The World Turns".
