estate-fresh mixed media painting (watercolor with pastels), Texas painter William Anzalone (1935 - ) This is a departure from the artist's typical figurative
work, and I have only seen a few of his early modernist watercolors on the market in recent years. The scene is a modernist one
depicting moored sailboats. Given the artist's location in Houston
beginning in 1959, it is in all likelihood a scene along the Gulf of
Mexico, perhaps Galveston Bay. Great modernist look!
The piece is signed "Anazalone" in the lower right
corner. It measures 9 3/4 x 20 1/2 inches to the mat, with an overall
framed size of 21 x 32 inches.
Condition of the painting appears to be excellent.
The linen liner has some stains, fraying, etc., and there are some
scuffs and scrapes on the vintage rough-hewn frame.
