This 1960s pastel on paper abstracted landscape is by New York/San Francisco Abstract Expressionist artist Gary Lee Shaffer (1936-2001). Shaffer trained with Hans Hofmann in the late 1950s and became an influential member of the Printmakers Workshop in Manhattan. His works are in the permanent collection of the Art Institute of Chicago and the Detroit Institute of Arts. Shaffer lived and worked in San Francisco and published his prints at Kala Art Institute in Berkeley, CA from the 1970s until his death in 2001. Framed in contemporary wood frame with a distressed warm silver face and grey sides using white archival matting behind non-glare 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”.
