    Philip Naviasky (British, 1894-1983)

    Untitled (a group of Mexican villagers)
    20th century
    Oil on panel
    23-1/2 x 46-1/4 inches (59.7 x 117.3 cm)

    A well-known British artist who worked with pastels, oils and watercolors producing portraiture work, still life and scenes such as the one depicted here in Villagers, Philip Naviasky enjoyed a prolific career as an accomplished artist. Paintings such as this have only become available since Naviasky's death and were sold by his wife Millie. A note from Millie attesting to the authenticity of the painting is on the reverse of this colorful picture. In a nicely carved gold wooden frame, the painting is a rare large work of Naviasky's that once was exhibited in the Verandah Club at the Hilton Anatole Hotel in Dallas.

    Philip Naviasky was born in Leeds, England, the son of Polish immigrants. Accepted to The Royal Academy at the age of eighteen, he went on to study at The Royal College of Art after receiving a Royal Exhibition award from the Board of Education. He traveled the world completing works of art and became well exhibited, including at The Royal Academy.
