circa 1925

About

Signed center right, 'Moldovan' (Russian-American, 1901-1982) and painted circa 1925. Displayed in a large gilt-wood and gessoed frame. Framed Dimensions: 22.5 H x 29.5 x 2 Inches “...Only a few artists, El Greco, in his View of Toledo, and Soutine, ever interpreted their visual sensations, their nightmares, and their anguish, with such vehemence, such an iconoclastic fury, and such spontaneous verve…as does Moldovan.” - Waldemar George In 1931, the preeminent French art critic, Andre Salmon, summed up Moldovan’s career in these words: "Moldovan is an authentic painter. He could do nothing other than paint…” More than a hundred years after the artist’s birth, these words are confirmed as the judgment of history. This lyrical Post-Impressionist master has left us a stunning body of work, measured both in the breadth and in the depth of its artistic vision. Spanning sixty turbulent years of the twentieth century, Moldovan's 1990 retrospective at the Carnegie Art Museum highlighted this shimmering cascade of creativity. We are pleased to offer a rare nude by this notable Post-Impressionist painter. This iconic work exemplifies the artist’s characteristic palette and his dynamic, almost vertiginous, sense of movement. The painting is accompanied by the hard-bound copy of the catalog of Moldovan's 1990 Carnegie Museum retrospective and a copy of 'Moldovan, 1901-1982; A Retrospective", the catalog for Moldovan's 1990 retrospective at Hammer Galleries in New York.
