  • KurtSeligmann's "Buste d'Homme" (oil and sprayed inks on panel)



— In Europe last month, Kurt Seligmann's painting "Buste d'Homme" sold for more than $200,000, according to the Citizens Foundation.

The foundation is housed on a bucolic homestead in Sugar Loaf that was formerly Seligmann's home.

Although a long way from the fantastical compositions that were to become his familiar style in the United States starting in the 1940s, "Buste d'Homme" — initially titled, "Homme antipathique" on the reverse — testifies to the various influences that inspired Seligmann during his earlier Parisian period.

It is oil and sprayed inks on panel (93.7 x 89 cm; 36 7/8 x 35 in.) that was painted circa 1932.

Visit the Citizens Foundation, 23-26 White Oak Drive, Sugar Loaf, to view other artwork by Seligmann and photographs chronicling his life. Call 469-9459 or visit between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.
