Vintage Modern Painting Joseph Holiday African American Artist Indiana Original:

This exciting visual poem relating to temptation/sin and original sin is richly colored and ingeniously composed and signed and dated lower right Joseph Holiday 51. Measuring 29 3/4" x 25 5/8" framed; 21" x 17" (sight) inside the mat, the work presents lovely African American females, a HUGE snake and an apple provocatively suspended from a string near a nude figure. Joseph Holiday (1927-1990) was born in Chicago and studied at the John Herron School of Art and the Art Institute of Chicago, living most of his life in Indy. His singular style was at once realistic and symbolic with well drawn/painted subjects cleverly juxtaposed in a montage-like style to give all of the portrayed images deeper meaning. This work, in his preferred medium of pastel, has strong emotional content and some genuinely lovely content and is in very nice condition with no apparent stains, tears or losses. (It has not been examined out of its frame). From a 60+ year old collection of Indiana art, it was purchased in the 1960's directly from the artist and offered publicly for the first time.WE ARE ALWAYS HAPPY TO SHIP WORLDWIDE IF ALLOWED BY USPS.
