This 1958 pastel on paper abstract is estate stamped in the lower right by New York/San Francisco artist Gary L. Shaffer (1936-2001). Shaffer trained with Hans Hoffman in the late 1950s and became an influential member of the Printmakers' Workshop in Manhattan. Shaffer moved to San Francisco in the late 1970s. His works are in the permanent collection of the Art Institute of Chicago and the Detroit Institute of Arts, amongst many others. Framed in a restored thin red/brown vintage wood frame with beautiful age and visible patina using archival spacers. The piece floats on antique white archival matting behind conservation clear glass.
Hand-picked by Serena & Lily from Lost Art Salon's Collection, a renowned San Francisco-based resource for original 20th century works of modernist, vintage, antique, and contemporary art. We like to think of the Lost Art Salon pieces chosen for our Serena & Lily Art Collection as being “twice curated”.
