David Adickes

"Still Life with Two Fruits" Black, Gray, and Red Abstract Still Life Painting 1958



Oil on board


Wonderful example of Houston Artist David Adickes's early work. This heavily textured still life features 2 apples and 3 bottles. Most likely this work was framed at Dubose Gallery or James Bute Gallery in Houston with silver outer and black inner matting. Hard to find! Signed at the bottom.
