Tony Vevers (1926-2008) joins the post-modern movement with this Rubenesque female figure standing in a park-like garden setting painted in 1966. London born artist and art historian, Vevers emigrated from England during World War II to Yale University where he obtained his BFA in 1950, moving on to the Academia du Belle Arti and the Instituto d’Arte in Florence, Italy, where he completed his European art studies. Returning to the Hans Hoffman School in New York City in 1952, he experimented with marine scenes and variious techniques of collage application. Teaching art at Purdue University for more than 20 years, in 1977 he co-founded the Long Point Gallery in Provincetown, Mass., where he made his home. Settling down on the post modern nudes of the period like those of Pablo Picasso as a preferred style of figure painting, Vever’s art today is found in private collections, corporate collections and museums throughout the United States and Great Britain. This fresh and light filled thinned-oil on prepared plywood measures 19″ x 14″ with its artist-made narrow molded strips and his sighned graffito lower left “t.vevers,’66.” $1250.
