Untitled, 1969

American, 1924

Composed of large geometric shapes, this abstract drawing expresses a dark mood. Executed in a cool palette of blues and browns, the work includes the image of four ferocious grizzly bears created using a technique known as frottage (rubbing) that is popular among Surrealists.

College Purchase, 1969
