Calvin Waller Burnett (1921 - 2007) - Portriat of two ladies
Oil on canvas - Signed

This oil paint of nude and entwined women is also painted in the well-known style of Calvin Waller Burnett. Waller Burnet did not hesitate to capture situations realistically on canvas, so not only well thought-out but also less thoughtful poses. Maybe that's why his paintings are so fascinating and erotic.

Waller Burnett followed an art education at the Massachusetts College of Art and also obtained an MFA at the University of Boston (1941). He himself taught at the Massachusetts College of Art for 32 years.

Besides a painter, Waller Burnett was also an illustrator.

Work of this artist can be found in various museums and collections.
(Dorothy Porter Wesley Research Center, Frederik Weisman Art Museum, The Columbian Museum - Georgia, The Paul R. Jones Collection, DeCordova Museum). In addition, his work was exhibited at the Smithsonian Institution and the Brooklyn Museum.
