"Ocean Pier" 1961 Oil Painting by Charles Griffin Farr

About

San Francisco artist Charles Griffin Farr (American, 1908-1997) studied, during the 1920s, in New York (at the Art Student's League) and Paris. Always a representational painter, Farr called his style "Precisionism," but he evolved away from realism and closer towards abstraction in the early 1960s. This 1961 painting, of the jumble of structural timber under an ocean pier, is clearly from the more abstract end of the continuum. From the late 1960s until his death in 1997, Farr held a well-attended weekly class in figurative painting and drawing class at his San Francisco studio, which had a view of the Bay Bridge. Among his admirers were such greats as Richard Diebenkorn and Wayne Thiebaud. Thiebaud even contributed the introduction to the catalog of Farr's retrospective exhibition, which was held at the Oakland Museum in 1984. Provenance: Grosvenor Gallery, London. This painting is signed and dated by the artist, in the lower right corner. It measures 23.25" x 33.25" as framed. The artwork itself measures 22" x 32".
