Max Karp "Bouquet" Picasso Enamel on Copper
Measures approximately 12.5" x 14.5" including frame.
American artist Max Karp is one of the few contemporary painters to use enamel for his artistic work. He is internationally acclaimed as the father of modern enameling. His place in art history is assured both because of his enormous talent and the fact that he has perfected unique processes which allow the creation of museum-quality kiln-fired collectibles. A self-taught artist, Karp was born in Ohio in 1916 and raised in California. Karp began painting by recording in his oils various species of birds and insects for his father who was an ornithologist/entomologist. In the mid-1960s Karp became interested in the enamel process. Beginning on a small scale he taught himself the enamel technique and later experimented with the large paintings in enamel for which he is best known.During the last decade Karp's enamel paintings have received critical recognition.
