Nick Vaccaro
(Kansas, 1931-2002)
Approach, 1999
Mixed media collage
32" x 21 1/2"

Signed and dated to the bottom edge, signed and titled to the reverse. The glazed frame measures 35 1/4" x 24 1/4" x 1".

Nick Vaccaro was a professor and chairman of the drawing and painting department at the University of Kansas. As an artist, Vaccaro was the recipient of purchase awards from the San Francisco Museum of Art (1958), the Dallas Museum of Fine Art (1961), and the Montgomery Museum of Fine Art, and his work has additionally been exhibited in the Nelson Gallery of Art, Oklahoma Arts Center, Wichita Art Museum, and Dallas Museum for Contemporary Arts.


The collage is in very good condition. The sheet is somewhat loose inside the frame, and may need to be re-affixed to the mat. Minor wear to the frame.
