"Church" by Sperry Andrews, Amer., (1917-2005)
Regular price $950
Color Monotype, ca.1940, 9 x 12, signed with initials in image l. r., on buff wove paper, original scotch tape to four corners from original mount. This carefully realized monotype of an Icelandic church on a desolate street beneath gray skies with it's steeple in a shaft of light, offering a ray of hope during wartime, shows Sperry Andrews modernist embrace of accentuated hard edges and cubist planar faceting to flatten space, while portraying rural and urban subjects.
