        FELRATH HINES (1913 - 1993)

        Oil on burlap canvas, 1957. 787x1187 mm; 31x46 3/4 inches. Signed in oil, lower right recto. Signed, titled and dated in oil, center verso.

        Provenance: Park Avenue Gallery, Mount Kisco, NY; private collection, Connecticut (1960).

        This mid-century modern painting by Felrath Hines is the largest painting by this abstract artist to be offered at auction. Felrath Hines achieved critical recognition for his painterly abstraction of nature with two solo exhibitions at Parma Gallery in 1957 and 1959, and his inclusion in group exhibitions at the John Heller Gallery and Parma Gallery in New York in the 1950s. He was a founding member of the Spiral Group in 1963, and had a long career as a museum painting conservator.
