Description: Mixed media painting

Condition Report: In very good condition commensurate with the artist's ouevre. Some staining and irregularities are common due to the found materials the artist used to create his work.

Notes: Purvis Young created art from a gut instinct, using materials found from the streets of Miami’s inner city such as old books, discarded wood, menus, carpet, doors and cardboard to incorporate into and create his art. The worn refuse has an emotional energy that reinforces the themes of his work. His painterly style, coupled with sweeping brushstrokes, lend an aura of tumult and an energy and passion to his work. Despite or perhaps because of his rudimentary scholastic art training, Purvis Young’s work is fueled by his emotions, combining the power, struggle, anguish, spirit and passion of his City. The resulting art speaks with such force and directness that Purvis Young’s appeal transcends the world of Self-Taught, propelling his works to the highest levels of the Contemporary Art World. Today, the art of Purvis Young can be found in over 60 museum and public institutions including The Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia, PA; The Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, DC; New Orleans Museum of Art, New Orleans, LA; High Museum of Art, Atlanta, GA, The Smithsonian Museum of American Art, Washington, DC; American Folk Art Museum, New York, NY; Tampa Museum of Art, Tampa, FL; Miami Art Museum, Miami, FL; and Boca Raton Museum of Art, Boca Raton, FL.
