Within a year after Robert Swedroe returned to collage-making, nine of his works were sold to various art collectors. Most sold in the $5,000 – $15,000 range.
Four collages were also delivered to Itchko Ezratti, a prominent international collector pictured below with Mr. Swedroe. His purchase included the award-winning 42″ x 32″ collage, “Boys in the Band,” which was hung next to a popular work by Jean Dubuffet.
“Boys in the Band” earned a newly created award in the Miami Chapter of the American Institute of Architects’ juried exhibition named “Art by Architects.” The AIA recognized Mr. Swedroe for his “artistic talents and sensitivity in producing outstanding work.”
