BURTON PHILLIPS, STUDY IN GREEN, 1972
Original oil painting on canvas by Burton Phillips (American, 1912-1996). This small textured abstract measures 12" by 14" (canvas alone) and 13 1/2" by 15 1/2" in its original gallery frame. It is signed twice on the stretcher, dated 1972, and titled "Etude in Green". Burton Phillips took up painting late in life (when he moved to Taos in the late fifties) under the guidance of Earl Stroh, the Taos modernist painter, who became his friend and mentor (Earl Stroh--1924-2005--was 12 years his junior.) He had only two solo shows, at the Johnson Gallery at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, and in Taos. His works were donated at his death by Earl Stroh to the Harwood Museum of Art in Taos, who is sharing them with the Albuquerque museum. (cf: "Taos Modern--Postwar Abstract", the catalogue of an exhibition held at the Canfield Gallery in Santa Fe in 2001, p. 32)
