Jimenez Balaguer - “Painting No. 7”
“Painting No. 7”
Jimenez Balaguer (1938-)
Image size: 15″ x 20″
Frame size: 17.5″ x 22.75″
This is a rare find! Its one of 50,000 pieces of art belonging to the Vincent Price Collection of original fine art sold through Sears Roebuck & Co. beginning in 1962. Professional and original frame with labels on verso verifying Vincent Price Collection. This piece by Balaguer has a wonderful texture of sand, taking on almost a sculptural feel replicating the surface of a planet. There is a small indentation on the left side that spans across about 4″ but hardly noticeable. Be sure to read the description on the last slide.
This is a fun blog post regarding the history behind the collection: http://blogs.artinfo.com/lacmonfire/2011/10/28/the-horror-vincent-price-sells-art-for-sears/
