10 3/4" x 7 3/4" inches

René Portocarrero ( Havana, Cuba b.1912 - d.1985 ) was a Cuban artist, widely recognized as a leading figure of twentieth century Cuban art. His pictorial themes are often related to the Afro - Cuban tradition, and his style is often characterized by vibrant colors.

Please give us a hand. The sculpture- or 'She' as we've come to know her, has been in the collection for a few years, since before our Wynwood (adjacent) -->LA  move. Though we do have a hunch or two, so far we've been unable to definitively identify ‎the artist. We would very much appreciate your thoughts and suggestions!

Anish Kapoor (b. 1954) is a contemporary Indian visual artist who was born in Bombay, India and is regarded as one of the most influential sculptors of his generation. "Kapoor’s voids and protrusions summon up deep-felt metaphysical polarities of presence and absence, concealment and revelation. Forms turn themselves inside out, womb-like, and materials are not painted but impregnated with color, as if to negate the idea of an outer surface, inviting the viewer to the inner reaches of the imagination."

Special thanks to the artist's cousin Lindsey @linds111222 for prompting Canvassed to read up on the artist Bernard Stern, fascinating. I have a new appreciation for this artwork after reading, "Bernard inherited his father's diminutive size. It made him even more ferocious, which bullies quickly learned at Stern's school." Self portrait?

Stern magnificently presented a "private yet universal world of intertwined dream and reality, expressive always of human mood and thought." He was admired for his "draftsmanship, awareness of tradition and modernism, a perfect sense of color, and a mastery of composition combined with a touch of humor and above all, humanity." (ps - we just ordered "Bernard Stern" by art critic Pierre Restany.) #bernardstern #moma #pierrerestany #stopbullying #canvassedgallery#abstractart#sketch#charcoal#exhibit#moma#themet#lacma#modernart#watercolor#canvas#drawing#painting#artcritic#architechture#laartscene#artofla#losangelesgallery

La Colombe de l‘Avenir (World Without Weapons), 1962
Pablo Picasso (1881-1973)
Color Lithograph on Arches wove paper
-------- Deeply distraught over the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War, in 1936, Pablo Picasso responded with a series of powerfully reactive images. Symbols of peace continued to populate his works throughout his career. This lithograph was created after a drawing by the artist for a poster for the ‘Weltkongress für Die Allgemeine Abrüstung und den Frieden, 1962’ ('World Conference for General Disarmament and Peace, 1962'). #pablopicasso #lacolombedelavenir #worldpeace #peacedove #canvassedgallery

In the mid-seventies, he broke into the art scene as a new image sculptor with a series of painted and constructed ladder and seesaw sculptures. By 1979 he was producing a series of pilaster and door sculptures, which combined sculpture and painting signaling the post-modernist movement. Over the years he has continued his interest in structure and painting using architecture as a common theme." #canvassedgallery #brucerobbins #mixedmedia #sculpture #abstractart

Nissan Engel
"THREE MUSICIANS"
Oil on Board, 1963
43.5 x 31 in. (framed)

An artist of international renown, Nissan Engel is perhaps best known for his work in mixed media, in which he manipulates disparate elements to create harmonious, lyrical compositions, alluded to in the incorporated musical elements.

Born is Israel in 1931, Nissan Engel graduated from the renowned Beaux-Arts Bezalel in Jerusalem and later received a diploma in theater design from the Centre dramatique de l'Est in Strasbourg, France.

Engel moved to Paris in the mid-1950s, where he painted and also worked on a variety of stage designs and costume projects; he had the first of many successful painting exhibitions starting in 1960 at the Galerie Weil. 
In 1965 Engel moved to NYC.

During his days in Paris and throughout his ten-year stay in the United States, Engel worked almost exclusively in the painting medium. The subjects of his early works - landscapes, still lifes, and equestrian figures, often presented in horse racing and circus scenes - were rendered in a style that was predominantly figural and representational, reflecting his academic training. The paintings from this period are strongly graphic and characterized by a bold and direct use of color. 
Engel's early influences include Picasso, Klee, Marini, Kandinsky, and other European expressionists, as well as the conceptual artists Oppenheim and Beuys. 
His later work was heavily influenced by the abstract expressionists of the New York School, many of whom he knew and befriended while living in New York City.

Theo Tobiasse
Lithograph
Limited Edition of 135
21.5 x 29.5 in.

#happypassover #theotobiasse #canvassedgallery #jewishart #judaica #israeliart #surrealism #art #lithography #פסח #passover #primitivism #kmr

Israeli artist Theo Tobiasse (1927 - 2012) created his earliest drawings before World War II, and spent the war years hiding from the Nazis in a Paris apartment. After the war he became a successful commercial designer until 1961 when he decided to devote his full attention to painting. 
Theo Tobiasse's style of painting is highly sophisticated. Tobiasse's technique is a painterly blend of surrealism, expressionism, and modern primitivism. His themes are literary, often biblical, and at times erotic. Tobiasse paintings seem to transcend history - fusing dreams, mythologies, biblical stories and his own past - into rich metaphors for the world of the present.

KEN APTEKAR (b.1950)
Pansy "Joker Viola-Gold", 1990
sandblasted glass, bolts, colored ink on paper
20 x 20 in.

Ken Aptekar is an artist who combines painting with text. He paints new versions of historical paintings and frames, bolting glass with sandblasted words to his painted panels. Aptekar’s work belongs to the tradition of painting, yet he brings to that tradition a recognition that paintings produce meaning only through their interaction with viewers. He investigates the nature of spectatorship. By “recreating” works of art in a painterly but utilitarian manner, Aptekar promotes viewers’ own narratives prompted by the image-text combinations.

Born in Detroit, Michigan, in 1950, Aptekar received his BFA at the University of Michigan, then moved to Brooklyn in 1973 to complete an MFA at Pratt Institute (1975). From February 7 through May 29, 2016, a commissioned solo exhibition, NACHBARN (“NEIGHBORS”), is on view at the St.-Annen Museum in Lübeck, Germany. Previously, his work has been seen in solo exhibitions at the Victoria & Albert Museum (London), the Corcoran Gallery of Art (Washington, DC), Memorial Art Gallery (Rochester, NY), Centro da Cultura Judaica (Sao Paolo, Brazil), Musée Robert Dubois-Corneau (Brunoy, France), Espace d’Art Contemporain Camille Lambert (Juvisy, France), The New Museum (NY), Douglas Cooley Gallery at Reed College in Portland, OR, Palmer Museum at Penn State, Cummer Museum (Jacksonville, FL), the Contemporary Art Center of Virginia, and the Elaine Jacob Gallery at Wayne State University in Detroit. In 2012 Aptekar’s work was the subject of a survey exhibition, “Ken Aptekar: Look Again,” at the Beard and Weil Galleries, Wheaton College, Massachusetts.  #kenaptekar #detroitartist #canvassedgallery #floral #pansy #victoriaandalbertmuseum #corcorangallery #art #contemporaryart @corcorangallery #thenewmuseum #espacedart #jewishmuseum #denverartmuseum

RED, 1978
Acrylic on Canvas
60 x 60 in.

LYNNE GOLOB GELFMAN
USA, New York, b. 1944
Lynne Golob Gelfman’s abstract and transcendent artworks are vivid reflections on the kinetic nature of our society and environment. Upon first glancing at the surface of Gelfman’s paintings, the viewer might be struck by the subtle shifts of the paint and brush strokes. Yet, the more a participant engages with the artist’s work, the more dynamic and convoluted they become. The energy found in nature, waves, dunes and clouds sprawl across Gelfman’s canvases, inviting the viewer to explore their inherent kineticism.
