Alfred Julio Jensen (1903 - 1981) was an American abstract painter. His paintings are often characterized by grids of brightly colored triangles, circles or squares, painted in thick impasto. Conveying a complex web of ideas, often incorporating calligraphy or numerical systems, they are frequently referred to as "concrete" abstract art.
After his death in 1981, the Guggenheim organized a major retrospective of his work, having held his solo exhibition there in 1961.
He studied under Hans Hofmann, an abstract expressionist painter who trained numerous well known artists at his schools in Germany and the United States.
This interesting piece hearkens back to ancient cave paintings in a work that captures light throughout the day. 'Daub' is a sticky material usually made of some combination of wet soil, clay, sand, animal dung and straw, used in conjunction with old wall construction ie. 'wattle and daub.'
This is I think a rare opportunity to own a remarkable piece from one of the major artist of the 20th Century.
The fine hairlines on the blue horned animal didn't come through in the photographs...they may have been created this way originally, none of the other animals have them.
