About

A fine abstract expressionist mixed media collage by American artist Varujan Boghosian (1926-2020). Boghosian was born in New Britain, CT and after serving in the United States Navy, he attended Central Connecticut Teachers College and the Vesper George School of Art in Boston. In 1953, he had a Fulbright grant to paint in Italy, and from 1956 to 1959, he worked with Josef Albers, geometric abstractionist, at Yale University where he earned both his BFA and MFA. Boghosian became a professor of sculpture at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire, and became primarily known for his assemblages in which he uses a variety of incongruous objects such as parts of weathered barn doors, antique dolls' heads, old leather, marbles, and ping-pong balls. This collage consists of an partial antique oil on canvas of a sailboat, along with a print or lithograph of poppies in a bowl, and a small paper cut-out of a figure, monogrammed lower left “VB,” matted, and framed under glass in a complimenting distressed red painted wooden frame with thin black inset. Probably dates to the early 21st century in very good condition. Dimensions: 17 in H x 22.5 in W, actual; 23.5 in H x 29.5 in W x 1.25 in D, framed. Ref:537
