1973 Suzanne Peters Signed "Seacoast" Abstract Expressionist Outsider Art Pastel Oil on Canvas Paint


Sorry, this product is no longer available on Dering Hall.

This is a vintage 1970s abstract expressionist oil on canvas painting by Chicago artist Suzanne Peters. This piece is signed “Suzanne Schilling” which was her married name, which she at some point chose to drop in favor of her maiden name on her paintings. This is part of a large collection of Peters’ paintings we have for sale from the divested estate of the artist and her family. Peters was a prolific artist in Chicago in the 1970s and 1980s, mainly working with large-scale portraits in an abstract expressionist style. This painting is from 1973 and is entitled “Seacoast.” It is a pastel hued abstract beach landscape portrait. It is an expressionist style sunlit visage of the point of meeting between seafoam green waters and ochre yellow sandy shoreline. This painting mixes bright flashes of pink, orange, and blue with a more muted palette evocative of sunset or sunrise, creating a feeling of salty air, cool breeze, and soft warm sand under your toes. This piece differs from the rest of our Suzanne Peters collection because it is a large scale horizontal orientation, and her work mostly focused in portraiture and still life, so her abstracts really stand out. The painting is in excellent vintage condition with minor age-appropriate wear but no cosmetic flaws. It was originally framed in a simple metal frame, but the frame has been removed from the canvas due to damage. You can tell around the external sides of the canvas that the piece was once framed, and there is some roughness consistent with that on the border of the canvas. The piece is signed by the artist in the bottom right corner and signed and titled/dated on the back. It measures 60 1/2 inches long and 36 1/2 inches wide.
