A small, mixed media painting on rag paper of jazz saxophone players jamming in an after-hours club. The two males stand out in relief from their royal blue background, implying a late-night session. Painted near the end of Chinsky's life, the piece is framed under glass and signed and dated in the lower left corner.


SHERMAN CHINSKY (1926-2004) was born in Brooklyn, New York, where he fell in love with jazz, sports, and the art of painting. He moved to Berkeley, California, in 1951 and earned a BFA at the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland (today the California College of the Arts). Chinsky showed his work in numerous galleries throughout the Bay Area, including Maxwell Galleries Ltd., the George Lawson Gallery, the Mills and Short Gallery, and the Lucien Labaudt Art Gallery.

I remember Diebenkorn [1922–1993] telling me don't worry what people think, just paint how you feel—there will be a certain group that you will reach. – SHERMAN CHINSKY
