Lost Art Salon is a San Francisco-based gallery that specializes in the rediscovery of historically significant artists and the curation of fine art collections reflecting the major styles and movements of the Modern Era. Open to the public, the gallerys showroom offers over 5,000 paintings, drawings, prints, photographs and objects from the late 19th Century through the present, with a strong emphasis on 20th Century Modernism.
Portraiture and figure drawings have always been a healthy and vital discipline in the art world, as seen in these new pieces by three Modernist masters. A San Francisco artist and illustrator, Forrest Hibbits' (1905-1996)mid-century aesthetic is characterized by strong line work found in his figures and distinctive abstractions. A Bay Area via New York artist, Hugh Wiley's (1922-2013)mid-century scenes and portraits show a frankness and passion for urban dwellers in a simplified form. Rip Matteson (1920-2011)was a Bay Area educator and master of the figure whose warm, dynamic nudes continue to inspire us. Wishing you an art and beauty-filled 2017!
