Laszlo Matulay created this edgy art piece of a nude woman co-mingled with colorful 3-D geometric shapes. The subject stands within the colorful shapes in a most unusual way, with Matulay utilizing a touch of the geometric surrealism of MC Escher. The piece is signed in the lower right corner (L. Matulay 69). This brilliant painting has been carefully set into a vintage frame, but it can easily be remounted into the frame of your choosing!

Laszlo Matulay was a prolific illustrator, muralist, painter, designer, and educator who was one of New York’s most sought after illustrators in the mid-to-late 20th century. Matulay's popularity skyrocketed following an exhibition of his work at the 1940 New York World's Fair in the "New Americans" category. His artwork appeared in Harper's Bazaar, Time, and Esquire. Most notably, Matulay illustrated Alice in Wonderland, Anna Karenina, Aristophanes Five Comedies, and Treasure Island.

Matulay's artwork reveals an artist steeped in modernism with the loose, fluid line and color of the mid-20th century. Think Henri Matisse meets Marc Chagall or at times Chaim Soutine with his thick impasto brushtroke. His portraits are a blend of figurative realism and mid-20th century abstract styling.

This, and my other listed original Matulay art pieces were procured via auction from a private collection during the latter half of 2022.
