Raimonds Staprans, Latvian, American, born 1926, oil painting on canvas, Three Oranges and The Can, 1963. Signed and dated, lower right. Framed. A paper label of Maxwell Fine Paintings, on the backside. Raimonds Staprans is known for Abstract imagery still life painting, sculpture. He is a painter whose still life and landscape compositions explore color and form by examining the geometry or architecture of everyday objects, chairs, tables, fruit, anonymous buildings, and subverting their inherent naturalism via color and flattened compositions. Rigorous geometry and a strong line are hallmarks of Staprans's painting. Though superficially associated with the paintings of Wayne Thiebaud, due to similar subject matter and a high keyed California palette, Staprans work is more akin to the formal abstractions of painters Josef Albers and Piet Mondrian. One of a kind artwork.
