Description Pair of Art Deco figures painted by Gustave Kaitz.

Gouache on board
Painting size: 18 x 14 inches (each)

Original work of art depicting two semi nude figures with decorative palm leaf motif by Gustave Kaitz (1913-1992), considered to be the last art deco artist of the 20th century. Kaitz has a very distinct style, reminiscent of artist/designer Erté.

The singular art of Gustave Kaitz may be described as a highly stylized wellspring of illusion, imagery and symbolism. Born in Brooklyn in 1913, the son of Eastern European Jewish immigrants, Gustave Kaitz started painting professionally as a young man selling his Art Deco originals to Gimbel's and Fortunoff department stores, and Greenwich Village galleries. The self-styled painter began establishing his reputation in the 1930s, during the latter part of the Art Deco period. Kaitz developed a unique style of painting, his art taking on untried visions through his conceptual Deco works of the times, employing mixed media of water colors, pastels and pencil, painted on board.

The paintings are sold as a pair unframed, ready for framing. Both are signed lower right.
