Call For Location | 203-325-8070


30" h x 40" w

Acrylic on canvas by abstract artist Adja Yunkers (1900-1983), dated 1972.

Born in Latvia, Yunkers first studied in Leningrad then Paris and Stockholm before moving to the U.S. in 1947 where he lived for the rest of his life.

A recipient of a Guggenheim fellowship in 1949, Yunkers is acclaimed for his color woodcuts and lithographs marked by an ‘experimental and lyrical quality’ , his use of ‘soft, lyrical colors, balanced to interact with each other and activate the entire pictorial surface’.

When Mr. Yunkers exhibited at the Whitney Museum of American Art in 1972 -the same year this painting was executed-, John Canaday wrote in The New York Times: ''He has been a steady presence confirming the wisdom of taking your time, thinking things out and allowing sensitivities to mature rather than depending on the gush of something passing for inspiration.''

Works by Mr. Yunkers are in the collections of more than 80 institutions in this country and abroad, including the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and the Museum of Modern Art.

Provenance : Estate of Adja Yunkers
