Oil on masonite painting of a reclining nude woman, 24" by 36" (30" by 42" as framed), signed at upper right "W. R. Shulgold" and dated there "75". This is a beautiful work by a well listed painter who was born in Russia and spent much time in the Pittsburgh area, as well as New York, before settling in Southern California later in life. Shulgold's biography tells of stints as a watchmaker and worker in a bottling plant, before yielding to the desire to create art. He was trained at Carnegie Tech in Pittsburgh, training under Arthur Watson Sparks. Later he trained under the great Charles Webster Hawthorne. Shulgold's art was exhibited at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Corcoran, and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. Since he spent a good portion of his life in the Los Angeles area, eventually passing away here, his works surface from time to time. Shulgold worked in oil, watercolor, and graphics. This nude's face somehow reminds a little of Renoir, and Raphael Soyer, as does her overall sensuality, and the handling of the body. CONDITION: A little dusty; I note a small paint loss in the center, visible in images as a small white patch (easily inpainted). See the net for more on the artist.
