Nathan Oliveira (American, 1928-2010): Figure Study. Charcoal and graphite on paper, signed lower right, unframed, mounted to archival mat board.

Nathan Oliveira was an American painter, printmaker, and sculptor, born in Oakland, California to immigrant Portuguese parents. Oliveira adopted a painting process similar to the abstract expressionists, applying pigment to his canvases and working almost at random until an image began to assert itself.

22.75 x 16.75 inches with mat; 17 x 11.25 inches paper.

Private collection, Boston.


Good condition overall; a diagonal crease runs through the top half of the paper; handling marks through out; residue from previous mounting in two lower corners.
