    Two Women, 1956
    Oil on masonite
    48in. x 18in.
    Signed and dated lower right

    A classic Bror Utter composition abstracting from the female figure. Flags, cylinders, and tilted planes, all typical Utter compositional devices, are woven into the design. Utter's original hand-painted frame remains as an integral part of the painting.

    This painting was given by Bror Utter to his friend and one-time roommate, and has remained in that family until the present day.

    Provenance:
    Acquired by descent from the artist by the present owner
