Henry Putney Abstracted Double Venus Diptych Paintings

Out of stock

Description

Abstracted female figural paintings by Henry Putney, circa 1960s. The dyptych, two part image, consists of two independent but complimentary paintings. Each female figure is abstracted to a degree that one could easily loose sight of the body as a whole. However, the parts are there, recognizable upon study. Perhaps most obvious are the breast and thigh forms of the second image. The first painting (left) has been deeply reduced to the essence of femininity. Her bottom and thigh are most discernible but that is where the figure ends. A field of flesh color pigments take the place of her torso. Many of Putney’s pieces seem to simultaneously venerate and catechize the power of femininity. Here, the artist seems celebrate the female form all the while acknowledging it’s mystique. Each painting is acrylic on canvas board, signed by artist “Henry Putney.” We have several more pieces from Putney.
