By Los Angeles artist AKOP TASHCHYAN (1949-), this is a 2009 line drawing, 12" by 13" (16 1/4" by 20 1/4" framed), titled by the artist "NUDES". Signed at upper left and again signed by the artist on the reverse board. Tashchyan was born in Yerevan, the capital of Armenia. and came to the United States in the late 1980's. Always talented as a child, his father did not encourage his artistic pursuits. Tashchyan was not able to stifle his creative impulses, however, and the world is the better for it. His works include line drawings of nudes, dogs, spider webs, and very distinctive minimalist works featuring finely spaced horizontal parallel squiggly lines. The artist credits artists such as Matisse, Picasso, Ivan Aivazovsky, Rembrandt, and Van Gogh, as influences. This drawing is in excellent condition. Tashchyan's work is popular in the Los Angeles area with collectors and decorators.
