Tooker, George (American, 1920-2011). PORTRAIT HEAD OF JARO FABRY. Oil on canvas, not dated, but before 1953. 20 x 14 inches. In very good condition, with minor retouching. Provenance, Marisa del Re Gallery, Inc. New York; Donny Malone Auction Gallery, Saugerties, New York; a private collector; Skinner Auctions, Boston, MA. A note accompanying the lot, written on a George Tooker exhibition announcement postcard (1985) from Marisa del Re Gallery, Inc., New York, indicates that the canvas was inscribed on the reverse with the name of the sitter, Jaro Fabry, now covered due to lining. Fabry (1912-1953) was an artist and illustrator, working primarily in Hollywood from the 1930s until his death. His work appeared in the New Yorker, Colliers and other popular magazines. A book about his work, "Jaro Fabry: The Art of Fashion, Style, And Hollywood In The 1930s - 1940s" was published in 2008 with an introduction by Alex Chun.
