Gerald G. Boyce Signed 1980 Casein Painting


A 1980 Surrealist style casein painting by the American artist Gerald G. Boyce (1925-1999). This highly detailed abstract work depicts the back of a nude figure standing a raised platform and painted in grisaille. Surrounding the figure is a white rectangle that sits on a blue and red checkerboard floor with a window above it showing treetops. Signed and dated to the lower right, the painting is displayed in a wooden frame and a white mat.

Born in Embarrass, Wisconsin, Boyce graduated with an undergraduate Science degree from Wisconsin State University in 1949 and a Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Iowa in 1950. He later completed postgraduate degrees from Indiana University, the University of Illinois, Oxford University, and the Americano Guatemalteco Instituto in Guatemala. Boyce had an extensive teaching career, mostly as the chair of the Art Department, as well as an art history professor, at the University of Indianapolis. He also taught at Fresno State College, St. John's University, Indiana University, and Wabash College. He exhibited his own art extensively and his works have been included at exhibitions at The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington D.C., the Chicago Art Institute, the Los Angeles Art Museum, as well as many other museums, galleries, and universities.
