1975 Abstract Painting by Philip A. Solman
Artist: Philip A. Solman Title: Untitled Abstract (P903) Date: 1975 Medium: Oil, pastel and marker on canvas board Dimensions: 16” x 20” Signed and dated front and back. Philip A. Solman (d. 1982) was an artist and electrical engineer. He lived and worked in Queens. His brother, Joseph Solman, was a well-regarded expressionist painter. In the 1960s, Philip Solman primarily produced sculpture, assembling figurative works from everyday industrial materials, including scrap metal and rebar. In the 1970s, he switched to painting and collage, working in a mode that freely combined figurative and abstract elements. Solman’s work is obviously indebted to such modernist masters as Picasso, Klee, Matisse, and Kandinsky, whose pictures he saw at the Museum of Modern Art and the Guggenheim Museum. The flame-like, semi-figurative, overlaid formal language of the work is all his own, however. Signed and dated on front and back. In the original frame.
