ARTHUR LIDOV MOTHER AND CHILD 1946
Original grisaille painting (with subtle touches of color) by Arthur Lidov (American, 1917-1990). In excellent original condition and in its original frame. Signed l.r. and dated 1946. 18" by 21" painting alone, 25" by 28" in its frame. A very poignant post-Holocaust work. Arthur Lidov is a major American artist who became famous as a medical and science illustrator. He created murals and sculpture during the WPA, and was widely exhibited, at the AIC (he was born in Chicago), and at the National Academy of Design, to name but a couple of venues. He had his studio next door to Mark Rothko's in Manhattan, and they were friends until Rothko's death (it is reported that Lidov pronounced Rothko dead). One of two works by this artist currently available.
