About

Original oil on canvas painting by Irene Zevon. Traces of spray paint in several areas as part of the painting done by the artist. Signed and dated lower right, 1962. Condition: Very good. Several small areas of in paint along the top and bottom edge of painting. Presently not framed.. Provenance: Estate of Leonard Barton, her son. Irene Zevon, born in Brooklyn, was the first child in a Ukrainian family of working class immigrants. She began her art career in 1953 -- studying with Nahum Tschacbasov in New York City and Woodstock, New York. Tschacbasov studied with artists such as Leopold Gottlieb, Marcel Gromaire, and Fernand Leger, whose techniques were passed down to Zevon. Tschacbasov while teaching belonged to a group of ten artists, which included the likes of Mark Rothko and David Burliak. His circle of friends at the time included Stuart Davis, Milton Avery, the Soyer brothers and Marsden Hartley. Irene Zevon and Nahum Tsachcbasov's relationship flourished, and in 1966 they wed. The couple lived seasonally in Amagansett and East Hampton; and year-round in their loft apartment at the Hotel Chelsea where they became part of the Chelsea art scene. Zevon resided in and had a studio for fifty years at The Chelsea. Zevon worked in a modernistic, lyrical abstract-figurative style in the mediums of oil and acrylic painting, linoleum block prints and monotype prints. Following her introduction to intaglio printmaking, she developed a unique printing process in which three or more surface-printing techniques were used in non-traditional combinations. Concurrently, she created a collection of hand-crafted jewelry and powerful Etruscan-inspired ceramics. Today her artworks can be found in collections throughout the U.S., including the permanent collections of The San Fransisco Museum of Fine Art, the Butler Art Institute, the California State Library, the Library of Congress, the Columbus Museum of Arts and Crafts, the Dallas Museum of Fine Arts, the St. Louis Museum of Art and the University of Georgia Museum of Art, as well as other museums and collections around the globe, both public and private.
