A fine abstract collage on paper by American artist Varujan Boghosian (b. 1926). Boghosian was born in New Britain, CT and after serving in the United States Navy, he attended Central Connecticut Teachers College and the Vesper George School of Art in Boston. In 1953, he had a Fulbright grant to paint in Italy, and from 1956-1959, he worked with Josef Albers, geometric abstractionist, at Yale University where he earned both his BFA and MFA. Boghosian became a professor of sculpture at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire, and became primarily known for his assemblages in which he uses a variety of incongruous objects such as parts of weathered barn doors, antique dolls' heads, old leather, marbles, and ping-pong balls. This piece is a collage on antique inscribed paper, possibly a book page, with a mechanical paper clown, cut clown heads, a yellow colored paper semicircle, and cut stage curtains, monogrammed lower left VB, mounted, matted, and framed under glass in a simple brown wooden frame. Dimensions: 16.5 in H x 20.75 in W, actual; 20.5 in H x 25 in W, framed.
