      SAM GILLIAM (1933 - )
      Scatter Pisces.

      Acrylic and flocking on cotton canvas, with canvas collage, 1973. 1016x762x51 mm; 40x30x2 inches, with beveled edges. Signed, titled and dated in ink, upper right verso.

      Provenance: acquired directly from the artist: private collection, Washington, DC; private collection, New Mexico.

      This richly textured painting is a fascinating and scarce example of Sam Gilliam's work between the stained beveled-edge paintings of 1970-72 and the collaged paintings of mid-1970s. Another 1973 example is Rubiyat, 31x73 inches, in the collection of Di and Lou Stovall. Binstock p. 88.
