MILTON AVERY (AMERICAN 1885–1965)
"LONE PINE"

Signed and dated 'Milton Avery *962' bottom right, oil over traces of pencil on paper
Sheet size: 23 x 35 in. (58.4 x 88.9cm)

Provenance: Private Collection, Pennsylvania.
NOTE:
Milton Avery is renowned for his works on paper, having created a myriad of watercolors, drawings, and oils on paper throughout his career. Many of the artist's oils on paper, such as the present lot, recall the esteemed tradition of the pastoral landscape in the art historical canon, while still maintaining distinct modernism. Deeply imbued with sentiment, it depicts a serene expression of Avery's real life observations intertwined with his own simplified and abstracted style. Often recognized for his colorful compositions, this particular landscape has been rendered in blacks, grays, and whites. The title, "Lone Pine," creates a sense of quiet isolation, and the subdued color palette makes for a contemplative and introspective piece.
We wish to thank the Milton and Sally Avery Arts Foundation for confirming the authenticity of the present lot.
