David Adickes
Post-Impressionist Yellow and Green Still Life of Pears and Plums Painting

1970s

US$2,500

About

Post-Impressionist abstract painting of a still life that incorporates golden pears and blue-toned plums. The work is done using bright pastel colors and the paint is layered giving the surface a textured look. The artist signed the work in the lower left corner of the painting. The canvas is framed in a gold frame with a white matte. Dimensions Without Frame: H 9 in. x W 12 in. Artist Biography: Born in Huntsville in 1927, Adickes graduated from Huntsville High School in 1943. Nearing the end of World War II, at age 17 he joined the Air Force and regularly traveled to France. “I always liked art and was always drawing in the margins of my book,” Adickes said. “But being in Paris where there are galleries and museums on every corner—as just a small town kid from Huntsville, Texas—that was my turning point.” After completing his service, Adickes returned to Huntsville and earned his bachelor’s degree from Sam Houston State University. He then studied art with artist Fernand Leger in France for two years before moving to Houston to open his own art school.
