Original Painting of Interior Design of Movie or Theater Set from Melvin's Dwork Estate. Artist signed on the right bottom. I can't read artist full name. I wish it could be done by Oliver Messel. Painting is wrapped in an original plastic sleeve.
My guess has never been removed. Please look closely at the photos. Dimensions of the art: 30"x22". Looks to me painting was given as a gift to Melvin Dwork. More info about Melvin Dwork.
Melvin Dwork (February 9, 1922 June 14, 2016) was an American interior designer and LGBT activist. He was discharged from the United States Navy in World War II for his homosexuality. He eventually had his dishonorable discharge changed to honorable in 2011. Following the war, he studied design and won several awards. During World War II, Dwork served in the U.Navy and then applied for officer candidate school. In 1944, he began classes at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, South Carolina. After his partner was arrested and revealed that Dwork was his partner, military police arrested Dwork in Charleston in 1944. He was jailed, labeled "deviant" by psychiatrists and then discharged as undesirable.
He took classes at the Parsons School of Design, worked for antique dealers and worked alongside Yale Burge in the 1960s and James Maguire in the 1970s before striking out on his own. Dwork was elected to the Interior Design Hall of Fame in 1993.
He assisted the designer Yale R. Burge in the 1960s and was a design partner of James Maguire in the early 1970s. He then worked independently for many clients, including the RCA chairman Robert W.Sarnoff and the film director Milos Forman. His work was featured in The New York Times, House & Garden, Town & Country and Architectural Digest. Melvin Dwork has been listed as a noteworthy interior designer by Marquis Who's Who.
