Robert Gordy was an iconic New Orleans painter. He was part of the "Art and Decoration" movement that also included Keith Haring . This is a classic style for Gordy - the nudes, the geometric forms - a really good one, with great colors.

Robert Gordy bio
Balancing a clean, formal graphic approach with creativity, wit and verve, Robert Gordy created a style of painting that is instantly recognizable to anyone even vaguely familiar with his work. Sometimes placed in a category with Keith Haring, he created images that exploited patterns and simplicity of form. He had a wonderful sense of color as well.

Gordy’s artmaking
Robert Gordy was unusual in his frequent use of markers, pens and ink to create his images – which are so clean that they look to a contemporary eye to be machine or computer-created. He was enraptured with print-making, and produced many limited-edition print series’. Robert Gordy’s works are in museums worldwide, including the Whitney, MoMA, the Smithsonian and other top-tier institutions.

The screen print still has a label on back, as shown, from the prestigious New Orleans gallery Simonne Stern, and yes, you can see its price from the 1980s (but sorry, I paid $600 for it at auction in 2020 so you cannot have it for that 30-something year-old price! I have to make at least a small profit after what I paid plus the other costs are taken out)! Gordy screen prints are unmistakable in their style - you know the artist in an instant.
