This painting of artist Nick Brigante just sold through the Poetic Eye to a southern California collector. Brigante and Carmean were friends for many years so it was inevitable that Carmean would end up painting him. This portrait is actually part of a larger canvas which Carmean destroyed (see our blog on portraits by Harry Carmean to see the original painting.) An example of Brigante's work is seen above.

The Poetic Eye just sold this large black and white abstract painting by Lorser Feitelson to a Hard-Edge collector in Los Angeles. It had not been shown since the seventies and so is a wonderful new addition to Feitelson's body of work that will be seen and enjoyed once again. The Poetic Eye periodically sells the work of Lorser Feitelson and Helen Lundeburg in addition to its core group of artists.
