Varujan Boghosian
Swan & Book Fragment

circa late 20th century

US$1,800

About

A fine abstract expressionist 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 abstract expressionist collage includes a cut paper image of a swan in the lilies, an antique document, mounted on a marbled book fragment, signed lower right “VB,” mounted in a custom mat and framed under glass in a simple wooden frame. Dimensions: 10.5 in H x 7 in W, actual; 20.75 in H x 16.75 in W, framed. Ref: 8
