Description

Hand Signed; And dated by Judy Pfaff, upper left, recto
 
 
 
Judy Pfaff's sculptures, drawings and prints have been exhibited in museums and galleries around the world. She has been described as a "collagist in space", Pfaff’s dramatic style is eloquently exemplified eloquently in this unique, hand-signed and dated collage from 1994. Here, the rich, clearly defined leaves of the composition illustrate her interest in natural, organic materials and motifs. 

This work is presented in the artist's original, hand-made, wooden frame, measuring 56 x 20 x 2.5 inches. In addition, the work comes in the original custom made wooden box that was created for it. 

This work has excellent provenance: it came from the collection of art critic and writer Winifred Bell, who acquired it directly from Bellas Artes Gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico. It bears the label of Bellas Artes Gallery, as well as the Andre Emmerich Gallery where it was originally shown. 

Judy Pfaff was born in London in 1946 and later settled in America at the age of thirteen. She received her B.F.A. from Washington University and her M.F.A. from Yale University. Her work can be found in such prestigious collections as the Detroit Institute of Art; The Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Pfaff's innovative work has brought her wide acclaim from galleries and museums throughout the world and earned her many awards, including a John D. and Catherine T. Mac Arthur Foundation Award (2004); a Bessie (1984); and fellowships from the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation (1983) and the National Endowment for the Arts (1986). In April, 2014,she was granted a Lifetime Achievement  Award from the International Scupture Center (ISC).
