Frater - 'Woman With a Black Hair', oil on canvas.
26 x 30.5 inch 61 x 81 cm
Hal Frater passed away on February 3, 2008, just a month from celebrating his 99th birthday. Hal Frater had a long and prolific career. He became a sought after commercial artist for over fifty years .
All the while he would return to his studio and paint for himself rather than his clients. Yet he always retained his illustration roots in wanting to tell a story on canvas with his keen eye of observation on the human condition. Often he would join fellow artists in informal sessions and paint from a model - no formal art school training but a mutually beneficial learning experience.
His contemporaries that influenced him were Jack Levine, Raphael Soyer, John Sloan, Thomas Hart Benton, Reginald Marsh and Phillip Reisman. Hal Frater's creative work was primarily influenced by the 1920s. The notable innovations established in the early years of the 20th century were matured further in the 1920s and 1930s.The painting comes with a certificate of authenticity and a letter of appraisal.
