painted ostrich egg
6½ w × 10 h in (17 × 25 cm)
A wonderful, historical object, painted by Georges Schreiber, the egg is a tribute to the Associated American Artist's Gallery and depicts many of its members: Schreiber himself, in a painting being carried by Reeves Lewenthal, who was the owner and director of the gallery, Aaron Bohrod is shown with one of his fabric designs, Marion Greenwood (as a fantasy woman), and George Grosz (with rats and bats) amongst others. Signature to bottom.
