BEAUTIFUL VIBRANT ART DECO OIL PAINTING BY HUGO GNAM C. 1976
- $30K APPRAISAL VALUE!
This captivating artwork is an original oil on canvas created by the Swiss-born, New York-based Art Deco designer and painter, Hugo Gnam (1899-1997). Gnam received his training in Zurich and briefly collaborated with Joseph Urban, their joint efforts resulting in an exhibition room at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. During the Art Deco period, Gnam secured both public and private commissions, including projects in the Empire State Building and luxurious residences along Fifth Avenue, all of which earned recognition in design publications.
In 1933, Gnam sketched his dream house, although it remained unrealized, providing a glimpse into his affinity for bold, expressive colors. This particular painting, created between 1940 and 1950, beautifully embodies that preference with its vibrant palette showcasing various shades of blue, orange, red, and purple, all infused with a dynamic sense of motion. It is undoubtedly one of the most exquisite pieces by Gnam to ever grace the market.
The New York Times, in an article, aptly described Gnam's oil paintings as "an idiosyncratic blend of Henri Rousseau, Salvador Dalí, and Frida Kahlo." Notably, the artwork holds historical significance, as it was used as a backdrop by Liberace during his concerts, and it found a home in the collection of the renowned artist Mark Rothko.
This remarkable piece by Hugo Gnam is a testament to his unique artistic vision and undeniable talent within the world of Art Deco.
