Description:  Here is an another terrific modernist cloisonné work by a newly discovered master of the technique.  This works dates to the 1960s and was created in the Rockland County, New York area.  Bookstaber passed away living in Rockland County, New York.

It is likely that Bookstaber was associated with the Gate Hill Cooperative in Stony Point New York, which was founded by former teachers from Black Mountain College and was in very close proximity to where Bookstaber lived. Other artists who worked at Gsate Hill and whose work is now becoming known, were also producing enamel and cloisonné art, but there is very little literature about the cooperative and its membership.

This piece has a definite hippie era aesthetic depicting a peace dove, but is also modernist in design and execution. We purchased this as one of a group of four works by Bookstaber from the same source.  It is initialed in the lower right of the enamel.

Although we are selling these individually, we will consider reasonable offers for the entire group.

Condition: Very good with only the most minor conservation and a stabilizing of the crackled surface by a professional art conservator.
