Lot description
Seymour Fogel (1911 – 1984 ) was a Social Realist painter who also experimented in the Abstract and Expressionist genres. He was also innovative in his use of media, and incorporated oil paint, water color, acrylic, glass, plastic, sand and wax into his work. After studying at the Art Students League and the National Academy of Design, he went on to work as an apprentice to Diego Rivera while he was creating his controversial Rockefeller Center mural, which was eventually destroyed. Regardless, this experience helped Fogel established his own reputation as a skilled muralist, and he went on to create murals by commissions from the WPA’s Federal Art Project and the Treasury Department’s Section of Painting and Sculpture. Among the many institutions to exhibit Fogel’s works are the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, the Telfair Museum of Art, and the Dallas Museum of Art.
