WALDO PEIRCE (American, 1884-1970)

WALDO PEIRCE (American, 1884-1970)

Item Description:

Girls from Billy the Kid, 1941, oil on canvas, 38-1/2 x 58 in., signed, titled, and dated 'March 1941' on verso.

Note: The attire of the women in this painting _ particularly their ballet shoes _ suggests that it was inspired by Aaron CoplandÍs 1938 ballet Billy the Kid, as opposed to the 1941 film by the same name (which was released in May 1941, two months after the date on this painting). For another painting of Peirce's similar in subject but smaller in size and scope, see lot 1002 in James D. JuliaÍs auction of August 20, 2013.
