Outsider Art. Purvis Young. Avail.
.
Purvis Young (1943 – 2010), Trucks in the City, 43 x 35 inch oil on board nailed to the back of a wood frame. Signed upper right.
.
This painting is available.
.
As a young boy, Young tried art but quickly lost interest. It was only in his teens, while serving a three-year sentence for breaking and entering, that he gave art a second chance, spending his time behind bars drawing and studying art books. Upon his release, he continued to work, painting on the boarded up shops of Florida’s Goodbread alley until the abandoned street became a riotous mural, which developed a cult following from celebrities and the media alike.
.
Young was an American artist from Miami. His work, often a blend of collage and painting, utilizes found objects and reflects the experiences of African Americans in the south. .
.
In 2006 a feature documentary entitled "Purvis of Overtown" was produced about his life and work. His art is found in the collections of the American Folk Art Museum, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, the High Museum of Art, the National Museum of African American History and Culture, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, among others.

Houseboat. WPA Drawing. Avail.
.
Daniel Celentano (1902-1980 “Houseboat,” 7 x 10 inches. Ink on paper, c. 1930s. Provenance: Janet Marqusee Fine Art.
.
This drawing is for sale, and is included in our new digital exhibition, CITYSCAPES, a group of more than two dozen paintings, drawings and sculptures, all created in America, that offer a look at the power of the urban environment during the 1920's - 50s. These sensational period works can be viewed online at HeliclineFineArt.com.
.
Daniel Celentano at the age of twelve was Thomas Hart Benton's first and youngest student. Celentano often focused on the Italian neighborhood of New York City where he was born and raised as the subject matter of his drawings, paintings and murals.
.
He enjoyed an active career, exhibiting at all the major museums as an accomplished American Scene painter during the WPA and WWII era. His first one-man show was held in 1939 at the Walker Art Galleries. At the start of WWII, Celentano went to work at the Grumman Aircraft Plant, where he executed a mural on The Story of Flight.
.
We live with several drawings and oils by Celentano that we adore. The artist was introduced to us by the great dealer Janet Marqusee.

.
WPA Loggers. Men Working. Avail.
.
Vincent Campanella (1915 – 2001), “Loading Logs,” 15 ¾ x 22 ½ inch, gouache on paper. Signed and dated 40 lower left. Exhibited at Albrecht Kemper Museum of Art, 2007 and pictured on page 21 of the exhibition catalog.
.
The Campanella is for sale.
.
Campanella painted primarily in New York, Wyoming and Maine from the 1920s to the 1990s. He was employed by the Works Progress Administration (WPA) and began painting in the style of Social Realism which morphed into Abstraction.
.
Campanella was Thomas Hart Benton’s closest friend. After Benton died, Campanella completed, at the urging of Benton’s widow, his best friend’s last painting.
.
He received enthusiastic responses from art critics in his day, but as the decades turned, his work was lost to time. Today, the paintings and drawings remain visually striking, impactful and speak in unique new ways to today's collectors.
