I recently stumbled across these paintings, that bear resemblance to Henry Moore sculptures. I like the scumbling and impasto texture seen in both paintings. Unfortunately both sellers cannot make out the signatures, so these works remain "orphaned". I am thinking of starting a series of posts titled "Orphaned Art", which would display pieces that are unsigned or illegible.
