Joseph O'Sickey

(American, 1918–2013)

Oil on canvas

A former professor at Kent State University, O’Sickey enjoyed a prolific career spanning more than seven decades. Among his more recognizable works are the interior and garden subjects that helped
solidify his artistic reputation during the mid-1960s. Full of radiant color often applied with mosaic-like dabs of pigment, these compositions are further enlivened by patches of bare canvas.
