We are excited to be offering one of two exemplary works on paper by one of Caviar20's favorite mid-century American artists: Jack Youngerman. 

This work is a vibrant example of Youngerman's abstractions that flirt with botanical forms. 

Jack Youngerman (b. 1926) is known for his boldly colored compositions that alternate between pure abstraction and highly stylized depictions of flowers or other elements from nature. Youngerman often synthesizes the best characteristics of Robert Motherwell and Ellsworth Kelly creating something highly original and confident. Youngerman's work always feels fresh, vibrant and optimistic. The artist has had a prolific career with major museum show across the United States (and abroad) including at the Guggenheim and MoMA amongst others. 

Youngerman studied in Paris in the late 1940's on the GI Bill and was greatly influenced by the European modernists notably the cutout shapes of Jean Arp and the saturated colors and stylized florals of Henri Matisse.

Lately there has been a renewed interest, both from institutions and the commercial world, in re-evaluating artists who were active during the years following WWII to well into the 1970's.

This gouache is ideal for a young collector looking to acquire a unique work from Youngerman's prime period. 

Additional images available on request.
