more The seller says: This exceptional abstract print is by Seong Moy (1921- 2013), noted American artist. He was born in China (Canton), but emigrated to the U.S. in 1931 at the age of ten. This serigraph (silkscreen) has large, bold gestures of strong colors that look to me like calligraphic elements in ecstatic motion. The effect is very painterly. This print stunning; it is a beautiful, vibrant composition that would brighten any room. The print was published in 1979 in an edition of 300. It measures 25 3/4” x 20” the image, 30” x 22 ¼” sheet. It is titled, numbered and signed all in pencil in the lower margin, “Red Tapestry, 167/300, SMoy.” The print is in excellent, never-framed condition and is on a heavy, high quality paper. I will ship this print in a heavyweight tube. I ship USPS Priority Mail.
In his teens, Seong Moy studied at the WPA/FAP school in St. Paul and later with Cameron Booth at the St. Paul School of Art. In 1941, he was awarded a scholarship to the Art Students League in New York where he studied with Vaclav Vytlacil and that same year he studied at the Hofmann School with Hans Hofmann. Moy also studied at Atelier 17 with Stanley William Hayter from 1948 to 1950. Moy began his teaching career in 1951 with painting classes at the University of Minnesota. Over the years he taught part time at various universities and colleges, including Smith College, Vassar College, Cooper Union, the Pratt Graphic Center and the Art Students League. Following the lead of Hans Hofmann, Moy opened his summer school in Provincetown in 1954 and taught painting, drawing and printmaking for twenty years. He won a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1955 and became professor of art at the City College in New York.
Moy's work has been included in numerous solo and group exhibitions and is held in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum, the Whitney Museum of American Art, Brooklyn Museum and the New York Public Library. less
