Stephen Sacklarian (American, 1889-1983) acrylic on canvas abstract expressionist painting depicting floating multicolored amorphous figures against a turquoise daytime sky with a yellow sun and a blue nighttime sky with a light yellow moon above a mountain range in the background. Signed and dated "Sacklarian – 76" lower right. Museum accession numbers en verso of stretcher. Unframed, canvas is secured to stretcher. 72" H x 50 1/4" W. Third quarter 20th century. Provenance: Property of the Mississippi Museum of Art, deaccessioned to benefit the acquisitions fund. Biography: Stephen Sacklarian was born in Bulgaria and emigrated to the United States in 1911. He attended Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania before pursuing an education in Art from The Pennsylvania University of the Fine Arts. He additionally studied at the T-Square Club, the Philadelphia College of Art, the Fleisher Memorial Art School and with the sculptor Paul Manship. His early works were realist in nature, but in the mid 1960's Sacklarian began painting in a blend of modern and abstract expressionism, with elements of cubism, for which he would become best known.
