Lot 539: Guy Danella (NY, 1928-2006), "Dancing Green Table"
Description:
oil on canvas, signed and dated 1956 at lower right, presented in the likely original frame. SS 18 x 18 in.; DOA 21 x 21 in. This painting was inspired by the famous ballet, "The Green Table," choreographed by Kurt Jooss depicting the futility of peace negotiations of the 1930s. Danella references the music of tango and Kinetography Laban, used for the first time fully in Jooss' work. This painting was completed during the year of the Hungarian Revolution and the Suez Crisis, so it understandable Danella would make the connection to Jooss. Danella began his early studies in Utica at the Munson-Williams-Proctor Institute. By the age of sixteen, in 1944, he had moved to NYC and enrolled at the Art Students League.
