Description

    ROBERT PREUSSER (1919-1992)
    Asian Mist, 1957
    Oil and mixed media on canvas
    72in. x 30in.
    Unsigned, accompanied by letter of authentication from the Estate of Robert Preusser

    This abstract painting takes its inspiration from traditional Japanese watercolor and wood-block prints. At the same time, it stands alone as a finely tuned abstraction implemented in black, grey, and gold. Lines and shapes in the painting have a calligraphic quality and are implemented with highly impastoed paint mixed with grit. The large scale of the work gives it the physical presence of a Japanese screen.

    Provenance:
    Estate of Robert Preusser



    Estimate: $4,000 - $6,000.
