Large watercolor on textured paper by Yngve Olsen, American Modernist artist (1905-2000), in the stylized and modernist style of both John Marin and Lionel Feininger, has additional watercolor on back, archival matting with heavy glassine over painting. Measures: Mat is 19 1/4" x 16 1/2" and watercolor paper is 11" x 14 3/4". Signed in lower corner "Yngve". Undated, but these works were painted in the Southwest in the 1940s and 1950s. Yngve Olsen was a reseacher at Yale, his artworks had been in the possession of the Springfield MA Museum of Art and were sold in 2014, the first time his paintings came on the market. Very subtle coloring and a fine sense of design is apparent in his paintings, especially in watercolor, which is a difficult medium, requiring a sure hand and artful view. Last image is of painting on back, upon which the artist had written "toss". Note that the mat is a creamy color, and the painting has a creamy background as well, it appears a bit gray in some photos. Paper is heavily textured watercolor paper. Condition is very good, watercolors not faded or damaged, the matting is all archival and well done. Sold as is. Please see all photos for details and email any questions. Shipping via USPS or Fedex with tracking and insurance. Shipping delays may occur.
