Large David Kapp (American/New York, b.1953) abstract expressionist oil on canvas painting titled "Raritan River", depicting a landscape rendered in shades of blue, green, yellow, white, and pink. Titled and dated "1977" en verso on upper stretcher. Signed and dated en verso of canvas. A.M. Sachs Gallery, New York City, label en verso upper stretcher. Housed in a simple gilt metal frame. Sight: 50" H x 54" W. Framed: 50 3/4" H x 55 3/8" W. Provenance: The Estate of James W. Perkins, Jr., Nashville, Tennessee, ex-A.M. Sachs Gallery, NYC. Biography: David Kapp is best known for his paintings of the "contemporary urban landscape" which evoke "the feeling of silence that follows traffic noise, or the emotional distance of standing behind plate glass." Writing in the New York Times, Ken Johnson described Kapp's work as having "a dreamy, mildly hallucinatory air and a mood of Hopperesque melancholy." Kapp was born in New York in 1953. He attended Walden School, Windham College (BFA, 1974), and Queens College (MFA, 1978). He received a Creative Artists Public Service Fellowship in Painting in 1982 and the Rosenthal Foundation Award from the American Academy and National Institute of Arts and Letters in 1985. His work can be found in museums and public collections throughout the United States and Europe, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Texas; the North Carolina Museum of Art, Raleigh, NC; and Foundation Paribas, Paris, France.Ó (Adapted from the artist's website).
