Standing Female Figure - Antonio Salemme 1892-1995

 This came up for auction in France in the Fall of 19.  Wasn't sold.  I missed the auction and didn't find out about it till months later.  Shit!      Must have been done when he was there in the 1930s on a Guggenheim Fellowship.  Always great to come acroos something of his I haven't yet seen!

on handmade 140lb paper  that is why the edges are uneven.  But, a very beautiful and organic feeling paper.

Painting by Antonio Salemme

Below are some photos of a painting by my Master in the art, Antonio Salemme 1892-1995.  It is being offered on Ebay for $2500.  Too much for me to pay , but worth a great deal more.  A truly amazing composition and color harmony with a directness of brush that is unpretentious mastery!  Enjoy.
