Minimalist drawing of a little girl. Signed and dated 1962.
The drawing paper is kind of cringle. It's like he took any piece of paper to draw the portrait and give it to her parents who put it in this beautiful frame.
"Gino Hollander (1924-2015) was an American painter best known for abstract representations of the human figure, landscapes, and bulls. In a bold and fluid style similar to the work of Franz Kline, Hollander’s paintings were calligraphic in their energetic mark making. “I chose painting for the immediacy of the moment the medium can allow—its immediacy of expression. I find my deepest moments are of feeling and that is what I strive for in my painting,” he once reflected. “The art of painting provides me with a constant mirror of my being—both successes and failures, the good moments and bad.”
