Rico Lebrun – 1947
The Palm Springs Modernism show is fast approaching. The Winter show will have an opening night gala on February 16 and run through the 19th, a Monday. The show is held at the beautiful Palm Springs Convention Center. You can find more information on the show here.
Madelaine Pereny – Mabel, oil on canvas
I have been getting some very interesting material for the show, including a beautiful mixed media drawing from 1947 by Rico Lebrun. This work on paper is in what appears to be its original frame, which measures 24 x 30″. A fabulous example of this pivotal artist’s work.
A wild surrealist canvas signed Ian.
Beatrice Levy – Through the old gate, 1916 Aquatint etching
Dorothy Stratton – Traffic face
Other new works include pieces by Mina Pulsifer, Beatrice Levy, Francis DeErdely, Dorothy Stratton King, Roy Eskridge, John Sloan, Irene Emker, Cornelis Botke, Leonard Edmondson, Madelaine Pereny, Roger Kuntz and Barney Reid.
Really too much to list.
Barney Reid – Sunday, 1981
I will try to put pictures on the website by the end of next week. As you know, I have been doing modernism shows for well over two decades. I tend to bring a wider mix then most. Last year I even sold an indian basket. This year I will have a beautiful piece of Georg Jensen silver and a mammoth vase from Newcomb College. Hope that you can come see the show!
