This product is sold out
A 1982 oil on canvas painting by the American artist Peter Gethin Thomas (born 1934). Titled Ukiyo-e No. 53 Kuniyoshi C. 1847, this abstract work uses a ukiyo-e woodblock print by the Japanese artist Utagawa Kuniyoshi (1798-1861) as inspiration. In the painting, the faint outline of a figure enveloped in folds of kimono fabric is also obscured swirling and layered abstracted shapes. Signed, dated, and titled to near the lower left, the painting is displayed in a black wooden frame and stretched over a stretcher with a raised portion along the edges of the work, which adds a three-dimensional aspect to the work.
Known for his Abstract Expressionist style paintings, Thomas received an undergraduate and graduate degree in Fine Art from the University of Alabama. During the 1970s, he served as the Dean of the Corcoran School of Art in Washington D.C. and then went on to be art director at the Federal Reserve. Thomas has also worked as chairman in the painting department of universities in New York and Tennessee. His works are held in the collections of the former Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington D.C., American University, MIT, as well as others both public and corporate.
