Just In: A Seminal Work by Sam Gilliam

January 22, 2016

Los Angeles Modern Auctions (LAMA)

An important acrylic on canvas from the pioneering painter Sam Gilliam goes to auction on February 21, 2016. On Blue (1967), a work dominated by purple, Gilliam’s favorite color, represents a pivotal step towards his groundbreaking “drape paintings.” Beginning in 1968, Gilliam stopped using wooden frame reinforcements, giving him the freedom to explore cloth’s sculptural possibilities.
