Original Oil Canvas SALVATORE GRIPPI Untitled 1954

Lot 8090 Details

Description

Details: Salvatore Grippi (American, b. 1921)
Untitled (c. 1954)
Oil on canvas (26x18)
Worth Auctions Lot ID: SG-011

Worth Auctions is pleased to be offering a number of rare early works by the important New York School painter Salvatore Grippi, who worked and exhibited alongside the likes of de Kooning, Nevelson, and Kline during the heyday of Abstract Expressionism in the 1950s. In 1968, Grippi established the art department at Ithaca College, where he taught until 1991. In 2011, he was honored with a solo retrospective at Cornell University's Johnson Museum of Art. This was the last time that Grippi's work was displayed in his hometown - until now. Evan D. Williams, an AAA-certified appraiser and Director of Fine Art at Worth Auctions, says “It's a privilege to be curating and bringing Grippi's work to market. He was a significant figure in postwar abstraction and his work from this period has graced the walls of MoMA, the Whitney, and
the Met but has seldom appeared at auction. I think it's fitting that the pieces will be shown and sold right here in Ithaca, where Grippi taught and maintained a studio for most of his career, while also being visible to the entire world of collectors through our online platforms.â€
Condition / Notes: This painting shows some signs of age and wear including mild to moderate discoloration, surface abrasions, canvas slacking, etc.

The stated shipping cost in this listing will apply only to addresses within the continental 48 states. Within those parameters, the shipping cost for this lot will be: $39.50
