Varujan Boghosian
Lost in the Stars

2002

US$9,500

About

A wonderful abstract expressionist three dimensional construction 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 construction consists of antique lithographs laid on board, including a shooting target sheet, and metal jacks, all presented on an antique celestial map background, signed, dated 2002, and titled on verso “Lost in the Stars,“ and framed with a simple wood frame with a lighter wood inset. Dimensions: 14.5 in H x 13.25 in W, actual; 18.5 in H x 17 in W x 1 in D, framed. Ref:7
