Charles Clough

High-gloss abstract expressionist painting in muted palette (dusty blue and green, gray, etc.). Pencil marks in left corner. Year (1982) signed in bottom right corner.

Progress of Beauty 2

Mark Kostabi

Line drawing in felt tip marker on ivory ~ 10x13” paper with shading. Woman’s arm and dress filled in completely with black, as well as a pane of the stained glass window that she holds. The wall, pitcher, parts of the woman’s head and shoulder covering and bodice, and cash register have been modeled in stylized “half tone” of zigzag separating white and black; shadows take the form of dense curlicues. The tablecloth bears splotches of black ink that were possibly made by blowing air on wet ink through a straw. The map has been filled in with ink drips and splatters.
