From the collection of artists Lenore and Robert Szesko (Chicago, Illinois).
Robert Szesko was a painter, sculptor, and self-taught photographer. He learned drawing, painting, printmaking, and design from his wife Lenore Rundle Szesko who had a significant impact on his work. Exhibiting influences from ethnographic tribal art, Robert Szesko’s vibrant work often features abstract geometric figures and forms rendered with Cubist elements.
