This colorful enamel plaque with flattened abstract figures of two women, perhaps a mother and daughter, with flowers in blues and greens was done by American artist Joseph Trippetti (b. 1928). Trippetti was born in Philadelphia and developed a love for medieval imagery through his study of Renaissance tapestries while studying in England to become a silversmith with the Sheffield School of Arts and Crafts. Upon his return to the United States, he then focused his skills on enameling, with cloisonné becoming his choice medium. He became Supervisor at the Currier Museum in Manchester, NH in the 1950’s and later the Executive Director of the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen. He retired in 1969 and lives in Cincinnati, OH. Enameled plaque, signed lower right, and mounted on painted masonite panel, and framed with a simple wooden painted frame. The frame shows some adhesive residue. Dimensions: 16” h x 12” w x 3/4" d, actual; 22” h x 18” w, framed.
