Alfonso Ossorio (1916 – 1990)
Splendid House

Date:  1961 (dated on the verso)
Medium: Mixed media on panel in the artist’s frame
Dimensions: 77.4 x 138.1 cm ( 30 1/2 x 54 3/8″) including the frame; note Christie’s assessment of the dimensions, as follows: “As the work is in an artist’s frame, we consider the frame to be part of the work so the unframed dimensions aren’t applicable.”
Condition: Excellent; framed by the artist
Provenance: Obtained in trade directly from the artist in 1986 at his Hamptons estate. At some (unknown) time prior to that, judging by the gallery label on the verso (see below), Ossorio must have consigned the piece to Galerie Stadler, Paris.
Exhibition History: Christie’s exhibition, “Out East”, Southampton, NY, June 20– July 11, 2021
Price: Upon request
