Artist: STEPHEN SACKLARIAN (1899-1983)
Sacklarian is one of the major artists of this Century. His works are in dozens of important collections including those of the National Museum of American Art, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Norton Simon Museum of Art, the Witchita Art Museum, the Everson Art Museum, the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, as well as the University of Maryland, George Mason University, the University of Connecticut, the Mississippi Museum of Art, Hood College, Furman University, and the Chrysler Museum.
Over a long and productive career, during extensive travel, Sacklarian visited with Picasso, Henry Moore, Gorky, Matisse and other prominent artists. Sacklarian would always tell anecdotes and speak fondly of the times he visited their studios. Sacklarian was artist-in-residence at Notre Dame University. He was also a guest lecturer at numerous other Universities. Sacklarian received numerous awards and honors throughout his long career.
Sacklarian's artistic world is populated with amorphous figures and whimsical forms that often float against bright, angular backgrounds or subtle dark fields of color. Sacklarian is quite sophisticated in his use of color, perspective, and composition. Each painting is unique and unusual. Some are brooding; most are charming and full of mischievous humor. Many have sly sexual references. Sacklarian's palette favored bright rich colors. He is considered by critics to be a true master painter. Sacklarian's paintings have sold at auction at Phillip's, Christie's and Sotheby's.
