JACK YOUNGERMAN "CRUNCH" SILKSCREEN 1964
We are excited to be offering this exemplary and early silkscreen by one of Caviar20's favorite mid-century American artists: Jack Youngerman.
Lately there has been a renewed interest, both from institutions and the commercial world, in re-evaluating artists who were active during the years following WWII to well into the 1970's.
We are seeing museum and gallery shows mounted while prices rise for a host of artists who have been under the radar over the last 20 years including Frank Stella, Paul Jenkins, Jules Olitski, Sheila Hicks, Sam Gilliam and Lee Bontecou to mention a few.
Jack Youngerman (b. 1926) has had a long and prolific career with major museum shows at the Guggenheim and the MoMA amongst others.
Youngerman is known for his boldly colored compositions that alternate between pure abstraction and highly stylized depictions of flowers or other elements from nature. Youngerman often synthesizes the best characteristics of Jean Arp or Ellsworth Kelly creating something highly original and confident. Youngerman's work always feels fresh, vibrant and optimistic.
This work features a unique and bold trio of red, black, and yellow in cut-out like shapes. (Youngerman's work could often recall elements of Matisse's paper cut-outs.) Here, Youngerman forgoes his softer, organic shapes, instead focusing on the strong and jagged edges to compliment his fearless color palette.
Youngerman studied in Paris in the late 1940's on the GI Bill and was greatly influenced by the European modernists notably the cutout shapes of Jean Arp and the saturated colors and stylized florals of Henri Matisse.
