By very well listed, but underappreciated by the market, Easthampton, New York artist FRANK ROTH (1936-) is this drawing in crayon, gouache and ink, signed at lower right and dated there "3/67". The work is on paper measuring 13 7/8" by 17". I've photographed it outside of its simple modern metal type frame, including an old mat. Condition is excellent save for some browning of the paper, most visible in the margins and near the image corners where the old mat, having slipped to and fro over time, left old mat stains at that corners. The artist is extremely well listed, appearing in such reference works as Cummings "Dictionary of Contemporary American Artists", where there's a long writeup indeed. Roth was Boston born but worked a lot in New York, where he studied at Cooper Union and with Hans Hofmann. He taught in the East, Midwest and at Berkeley, won numerous awards and was exhibited at prestigious New York galleries like the Martha Jackson Gallery and Grace Borgenicht Gallery, and in Europe, in the late 1950's and into the 1960's. His work found its way into major corporate collections and museums like the Whitney, Walker (Minneapolis), Corcoran, and so forth. Strangely, his record at auction is not commensurate with the recognition he achieved. As of 2008 he was still living in Easthampton, Long Island New York.
