Pál Fried

Ever heard of Pál Fried? Neither had I until today. He was a Hungarian artist who emigrated to the United States in 1946 and worked for many years in New York City, painting dancers, nudes and portraits until his death in 1976. Shown is his Ballerina In Pose, which has an estimate of $800 – $1,200 and a starting bid of only $400. What attracts me to this oil painting is that Fried captured both her femininity and her muscles. No matter how pretty she looks, a ballerina without strong muscles won't last five minutes. The painting can be viewed at Susanin's Auctioneers in Chicago, USA. You can bid through (CLICK).
