Igor Pantuhoff (Big Eye) Painting:
Born in Russia in 1911, he emigrated to the U.S. and studied with Hans Hoffman. For two years he and Lee Krasner lived together in New York, sharing an apartment with Harold and May Rosenberg. Pantuhoff allegedly left New York without telling Krasner and became known in the 1960’s for his big-eye portraits. A brief obituary in the September 27, 1972, edition of The New York Times says Igor Pantuhoff died on Sept. 25, 1972.
Other original artwork by:
Richard Earl Thompson Richard Earl Thompson was an American impressionist, much influenced by the French school, and a highly successful illustrator. He was a child prodigy at the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts where he was a student of Frederick Grant. After that, he attended the Chicago Art Institute with Louis Ritman, who was a strong influence on his drawing, color, and composition skills.
To earn a living, he chose a career in commercial art, doing many back covers of the Saturday Evening Post, especially while working with Haddon Sundbloom. Thompson also did World War II War bond Posters. In 1959, with commercial art being replaced by photography, he turned to a full-time career in fine art and divided his life between the woods of Wisconsin and the shores of the Florida Keys with his wife Mary Munn. Of his career beginning in the late 1950s, Thompson created more than 1500 oil paintings. In his Chicago Tribune obituary, he was quoted as having said of his paintings: “No shock treatments, no political messages, compositions based rather on tranquil scenes—a sincere approach to painting to which all people can relate. . . .I like to devote time to the color of things as the sun creates them.”
