  • An attractive original pastel work
    A Nude Study in Pastel by SCHEPP, E.
    SCHEPP, E.
    A Nude Study in Pastel

    Netherlands: 1960. An original study, in pastels with three nude images. Perhaps a basis for sculpture, as the work shows torsos, and is more sculptural than erotic. The signature is difficult to decipher, but appears to be E Schepp or similar.  The work shows clear skill, and is in very good condition. Appears to have been drawn in the 1960's or 1970's Mounted in passe partout.  The work is held in a glazed wooden frame. The price shown here is for the pastel itself, in the passe partout, but unframed. If you wish the frame, then this is also possible for a small additional cost. (Most of the additional cost is the difficult shipping!) Image 56.6cm x 44.5cm. Frame 77cm x 66cm

Copies of the limited untitled watercolours that accompanied this volume have reached as much as €3,600 ove the last few years, with the average auction price being €1500 for the watercolour alone. Irene Rice Pereira (1902–1971) was an American abstract artist, poet and philosopher who played a major role in the development of modernism in the United States. She is known for her work in the genres of geometric abstraction, abstract expressionism and lyrical abstraction. More than any other member of the American Abstract Artists, Irene Rice Pereira took to heart the principles of the Bauhaus. Assessing its importance, she wrote in 1939 that the Bauhaus "exerted the greatest influence on our entire social order...." Pereira worked in an abstract vein throughout her life. She said abstraction offered "a wider range for experimentation and for clarifying the problems concerning pictorial presentation." Increasingly, though, she attempted to articulate her ideas in poetry and essays, the metaphysical tone of which often obscured rather than clarified her thoughts (with thanks to Smithsonian Institute).
