Boxer Knockout Punch - Esquire Magazine Mid- Century Sports - Action Painting

$ 15,000
  • Description
    Brilliant American Illustrator Bob Peak captures the fury and power of a punch to the face with rapid broad strokes of the brush. Combined with a somber color scheme and gestural brushwork, this painting could be compared to the action painting of Abstract Expressionist Franz Kline, whose quick and wide black rudimentary brushstrokes defined a new era in Modern Art. Unlike Kline, Peak remains rooted in figurative art, but clearly, Peak in 1961 was aware of and pays homage to Kline.
