Hard edge Abstract Painting - Monument #9

About

This exceptional acrylic on canvas painting is a beautiful hard-edged abstract work by James Bartell (1922-2008) The painting is beautifully rendered in a thoughtful mix of slightly modulated grays and browns that complement the composition’s upper and lower half containing similar but different elements. The result is a dynamic push-pull effect both in the composition and the palette. This push-pull effect is often at the center of the intention of the best mid-century abstraction. The painting measures 30” in diameter. It is composed of acrylic on canvas. It is in good condition, with some very small imperfections on the edge that are perceptible upon close examination. There is also a faint scuff on the painting which I have shown in the last photograph, only visible upon very close examination. It is signed very faintly on the bottom “Bartell”. On the reverse is more information – title, date and signature - “#9 Monument, James Bartell ‘73”. James Bartell had a long and accomplished career as an artist. He earned a master’s degree from the University of Oregon and worked as a designer at Heath’s Ceramics in San Francisco. He and his wife owned Bartell Design Studio in Eugene.
