      Edward Eugene Boccia, Italian/American (1921-2012), Self-Portrait at Easel, 1982, oil on canvas

      Est: $1,200 - $1,600

      Edward Eugene Boccia Italian/American, (1921-2012) Self-Portrait at Easel, 1982 oil on canvas signed and dated lower left, and again with title and date verso, framed. Born to Italian parents in New Jersey, Edward Eugene Boccia studied art at Pratt in New York City before moving to St. Louis where he taught at Washington University for over 30 years. Boccia became famous for his neo-expressionist style, and hundreds of his paintings were collected by Morton D. May (heir to May Department Stores, an avid art collector of expressionist works, and a great philanthropist), among others. Over the course of his long career, Boccia created over 1500 paintings and another 50 large-scale polyptychs in which he engaged in ethical, religious (both pagan and Christian) and philosophical topics. Here using dramatic dark blue-grey tones highlighted with pastel touches including a whitish beard, we see Boccia reflecting on his own image in a surreal, magical and mysterious fashion. The carefully striped shirt and easel serve as his attributes, and his poignant gaze with one eye toward the viewer and one eye toward the easel give us a self-constructed hint about how he was able to see and paint in an extraordinarily open fashion while employing vast perspective. His predominantly sorrowful tone might have had to do with the long-term sickness of his son who passed away in the early 1980s. A critical monograph of the artist is expected to be released sometime in 2024 or 2025; see www.edward-boccia.com for more information.

      EDWARD EUGENE BOCCIA (AMERICAN, 1921-2012)

      Est: $200 - $400

      Edward Eugene Boccia American (Missouri), 1921-2012 Untitled Acrylic on canvas Signed lower right. Abstract composition in a palette of bright green and pink, with accents of blue and goldenrod. Ebonized frame. The post war Italian American painter Edward E. Boccia was born 1921 in New Jersey and died 2012 in St. Louis, Missouri. Boccia was best known for his large-scale panel painting depicting contemporary life and religious iconography. The artist whose work is often described as expressionist was a classically trained painter with roots in the Italian renaissance but a distinctly modern aesthetic. He taught at the Washington University in St. Louis for over 30 years and served as a Dean at the Columbus Art School where he taught in the "Bauhaus method." A member of the covert Ghost Army, Boccia served in WW II and was a favorite of the prestigious art collector Morton D. May, the top American collector of German Expressionism. Primarily figural, Boccia's style appears to be different from the contemporary Abstract Expressionist movement of the mid-century, however the gestural quality and scale show a certain similarity or sensibility. And while the scale and complexity of his painting required a great deal of solitary time in his studio, Boccia is considered to be part of the St. Louis artist community centered around expatriates and Washington University during the war and postwar period, including luminaries such as the collectors Joseph Pulitzer and Morton May, the art historian H.W. Janson, curator Perry Rathbone, as well as the painters Philip Guston, Stephen Green and Max Beckmann among others. Boccia has been in the subject of 50 + solo exhibitions and his work may be found in over 600 private collections and more than 100 public collections including major museums, universities, and religious organizations. Subjects and styles and other distinctive characteristics for which the artist's work is best known: Boccia's lifetime oeuvre showcases various stylistic modes, including formal experiments in Abstraction, Neo-Expressionist, Expressionist, Magical Realism, Surrealist, and contemporary religious painting. The most important works include approximately 15 large scale multi-panel paintings depicting various scenes with motifs of Catholicism, contemporary mid-century life, mythology, and personal narratives. The triptych is the most common format, and almost all the pictures are characterized by the use of grotesque imagery, motifs from the Passion of Christ, and puzzling hybrids of modern life and Greco-Roman myths. Formal education and training and other professional influences such as individual artists: Edward E. Boccia earned his BFA, Pratt Institute, New York, MA, Columbia University, served as Dean, Fine Art, Columbus School of Art, Ohio and Professor of Fine Art, Washington University in St. Louis. He was a member of the covert Ghost Army of WW II. The artist was recruited by Ken Hudson to work for WU, following in the footsteps of former faculty members such as Philip Guston, Stephen Greene and Max Beckmann whose work would be a major influence. Boccia's primary patron Morton May held the most important American collection of German Expressionism which Boccia was given frequent and unrestricted access. Geographical areas of special interest to the artist's career included St. Louis, Missouri, Rome, Italy, New York, New York. Art Movements of special influence included German Expressionism, namely the work of Max Beckmann, Emile Nolde, the work of Paul Cezanne, Northern Italian Renaissance, American Modernism including the work of Joseph Stella. Relevant Personal Background such as places lived, family, studio locations, etc. Italian-American Artist, worked as a Fine Art Professor, Washington University in St Louis + Studio in Webster Groves, Missouri.
