Description

In silvered wood frame, glazed. 1lb Born in New York City, William Brice became a West Coast abstract painter. Speaking as a Californian, he made the distinction between the East and West Coast Abstract Expressionism: . . ."New York painting reflected the energy, the congestion, the twension of the city. The paintings of the same period painted here---and I'm thinking in particular of earlier Diebenkorn paintings---were more expansive. " (Herkovic 50) The son of comedian Fanny Brice and Jules "Nicky" Arnstein, he was born April 23, 1921. Brice and his sister, Frances were raised primarily by their mother in a household where playwright Clifford Odets, composers George and Ira Gershwin and other friends from the Broadway theater were guests. ...at the center of Brice’s Los Angeles social world was a small group of constant intimates, who contributed greatly to the rise of Los Angeles as one of the world’s great art centers. They included: Vincent Price, actor, gallerist, and art collector, who had studied art history at Yale and was a member of the Courtauld Institute, London. Price briefly had his own art gallery and throughout his life promoted the arts in Los Angeles including supporting what has become the Vincent Price Museum on the campus of East Los Angeles Community College...
