"Portrait of Sam Salz" by Edouard Vuillard, 1939, pastel and gouache, 20"-13.5". From a now out of print Abrams edition on Vuillard. Sam Salz, my father, was Vuillard's principal American dealer. For a fuller scan of this portrait and more on my father, you may go to the blog I created on him: http://samsalz.blogspot.com/?view=classic
"Cabinet"(for Vuillard), 2002, oil/baltic birch, 15"-11" by Marc Salz. Dedicated to Edouard Vuillard. I always liked how Vuillard would paint intimate scenes on dark grounds and build up to colored patterns.
"Private Garden"(for Federico Mompou), 2007, oil/baltic birch, 13"-16". Dedicated to the Catalan composer Federico Mompou whose piano miniatures are like Vuillard's interiors.
"Origin"(for Agnes Martin), 2003, oil/baltic birch, 12"-11" from the "Talmudic Abstractions" series.
