This stunning original signed 1960s op art painting has fine provenance: it was gifted in the late 1960s by Richard Anuszkiewicz to the famous composer Jon Appleton. Provenance is superb and authenticity guaranteed. It is accompanied by a handwritten letter addressed to the present owner, where Appleton writes:
"Nadine, This painting by Richard Anuszkiewica was painted and given to me in 1968 as thank you for a score I composed for a documentary about his painting. Jon Appleton 7/5/16
In a separate (earlier) email, Jon wrote: "Dear Nadine - I had just joined the Dartmouth College faculty in 1967 and the next year, Dick Anuszkiewicz was an artist in residence at Dartmouth. I cannot remember who made the film about him, but I gave a copy to the Hood Museum of Art at Dartmouth as I believe it was the only extant copy. Dick's daughter, Christine, married one of my graduate students, Steve Berkly. My children and grand children live in New York City...
Excellent condition. Bears dedication "To Jon" on the verso
Acquired directly from Jon Appleton, the original recipient of the work who had it in his collection since 1968.
