Beckmann Looking at my Model -a late picture by Edward E Boccia

Did you know that Edward E Boccia worked at Washington University shortly after the appointment of Max Beckman.. Boccia was indebted to Beckman in many ways, as often acknowledged the strength of the German Expressionist master’s work -and Boccia would inherit Beckmann’s painting easel and use it among the many others in his studio through the years. Recently, a late smaller scale painting entitled Beckmann Looking at my Model (1991) resurfaced on the market -what a fascinating piece -a reflection not only of Beckmann’s legacy in the story of modern art, but a moment in Boccia’s own artistic life.
