Acrylic and paper collage on board by abstract artist Adja Yunkers (1900-1983), executed in 1971. Born in Riga, Russia, Yunkers led a highly cosmopolitan life, studying and working in Leningrad, Berlin, Paris, London, and Stockholm (where he edited and published two art magazines) before settling down in the U.S., primarily in New York City in 1947. A teacher at the New School for Social Research, Yunkers was internationally renowned for his woodblock prints and lithographs, turning to painting--first expressionist, later minimalist color fields--in the 1960s. His work is in the permanent collections of numerous museums, including the Brooklyn Museum, MoMA, the Corcoran Gallery, MFA Boston, and the Smithsonian stateside, and the V & A Museum, the Hamburg Kunsthalle, and the Stockholm National Gallery abroad. He was the subject of retrospectives at the Baltimore Museum of Art and the Brooklyn Museum, among others. He is also the subject of a monograph, "To Invent a Garden: The Life and Art of Adja Yunkers (2000). The present work, "La Belle Epoque," is from his estate. It is signed and dated on both the front and back and dated June 1971. Newly framed.
