SALE Woman in Chair / Abstract still life

(After?) Milton Avery

1944
12x15
Oil on board

We paid $3500 for this some years ago from a Doctor who said he purchased it shortly after the artist’s death in Brooklyn. We then sold this painting to a major NY dealer who was sure of its attribution for $7000, but who later returned it when it was not accepted as authentic by the Foundation.

The signature is looks off and it is clearly more of a sketch than the more planar finished paintings. We suspect the signature was added to an unsigned sketch after or of one of  Avery's favorite models. The obverse has an abstract sketch. We make no attribution, save the period and its merits as a painting.
