Appears to be a ink Drawing
Framed and Matted
A very important Clyde Singer’s drawing. I believe this to be ink, as I don’t think markers were around in the 1950’s, tho I could be wrong. What I like about this drawing is it covers what looks to be Singer’s favorite, and most sought after subject; bars. Really, who doesn’t like a bar?

Clyde Singer was born in the small eastern Ohio town of Malvern in 1908. He grew up in the rural hills of Ohio and attended the local schools. Clyde was the youngest of four sons and two sisters. He had an early interest in art and entered the school at the Columbus Gallery of Fine Art after high school. In 1933, Singer received a scholarship to the Arts Students’ League in New York City where he studied under the direction of John Stuart Curry and Thomas Hart Benton. Singer exhibited at the Whitney Museum, the Corcoran Gallery in Washington, D.C. the Chicago Art Institute, the National Academy of Design, the Butler Institute of American Art and the Massillon Museum. He worked primarily in oils and water colors. Singer is known as a regionalist, focusing his work on rural and small town life in his home state of Ohio and around his hometown of Malvern; he also executed work based on his time in New York City. In 1940, Singer became the Assistant director of the Butler Institute of American Art in Youngstown, Ohio and, except for military service during World War II, remained there until his death in 1999. His work is included in the collections of many museums around the country. The Massillon Museum has fourteen works by Singer in its permanent collection.
