Born in Austria, Dolice spent the major part of his teens and early twenties studying the works of the Masters while venturing throughout Europe. He came to the United States in 1920 and settled in Greenwich Village, New York City. Obsessed with the city, he depicted the architecture, alley ways, waterfront, and nostalgic areas of his newly adopted environment. Most of his etchings dealt with areas now extinct or forgotten, like the Third Avenue El, where Dolice had maintained his studio for over ten years. He also devoted time doing pastels and paintings of New York. Dolice's works are in the collection of the Museum of the City of New York, New York Historical Society, and the New York Public Library.

Leon Dolice

Austrian-American (1892-1960)
New York City Scene
23 x 18 in.

Pastel on paper, 1940, signed in black chalk, lower right. In very good condition with good color. The artist's intent in the majority of his pastels was to convey the feeling of the architecture of New York. Dolice used a great deal of imagination to exaggerate perspective and create looming architecture. The final result seems almost impossible in reality, but conveys the feeling of the majesty and energy of the city.


$2000.
