Stevan Dohanos (1907-1994)

Decorative objects for a country house.

Wallpaper design, ca. 1950;

Casein, 28.8 x 27.3" signed lower right.

Condition: Very good overall; minimally framed.

Literature: Article: “Stevan Dohanos; Specialist in Versatility” by Pauline Engel; pp. 14-17; Famous Artists Magazine, Vol. 6, Nº 1; Autumn 1957.

Provenance: The family of the artist

Best known for his many Saturday Evening Post covers, Dohanos had a keen interest in Americana and antiques, and enjoyed working out complex wallpaper and textile designs. This unusual painting is a self-commissioned composition (though then used on the cover of FAM, as shown), probably a spin-off of his Westport emporium design, and contains some of his favorite collectible objects.
