Oil on canvas painting of a man seated in a library, 28" by 22" (34" by 27 3/4" framed), signed on the book cover at lower right and the subject apparently one "Dr. Young", by well listed Russian-born California artist ALEXANDER IGNATIEV (1913-1995). The work is very 1940's/1950's in feeling, almost mural-like. Ignatiev escaped Russia for China during the revolution and was in San Francisco by 1923, where he studied with Gleb Ilyin. Later in Los Angeles he studied at Chouinard with Millard Sheets and Phil Paradise, graduating in 1937. For fifty years subsequent to that he worked for the Hollywood studios, including Warner Brothers, Disney, and Hanna-Barbera. This painting is in excellent condition; no varnish.
