Milton Resnick (American, 1917-2004). Oil on paper painting depicting the artist's signature abstract composition in bright colors, 1960. Signed along the lower left. With a label from Columbus Gallery of Fine Arts (later the Columbus Museum of Art) affixed along the verso. This painting is characteristic of his abstract works of the early 1960s which moved from figural to more loose handling of the paint. It was at this time that his paintings began to grow in size as well, sometimes reaching sizes of 25 feet in length.

Provenance: Howard Wise Gallery, New York; The collection of Bruce Dayton and Ruth Stricker Dayton - Selections from The Marsh, Minnetonka, Minnesota.

Unframed; height: 31 in x width: 53 in. Framed; height: 35 1/2 in x width: 56 1/2 in.


The colors are bold and bright. There is one small area of loss along the lower center of the composition. Undulation to the sheet throughout. Light wear along the deckled edges; some small creases along the extreme edges that may be original to the nature of the paper. The work is floated in frame. It is affixed to an acidic backing. The sheet is hinged along each corner with adhesive. Wear to the frame; the top bar of the frame is loose. Framed under glass.
