LAVEY, ANTON SZANDOR. 1930-1997.
Original oil on canvas, untitled abstract, 26 x 40 inches, signed ("Anton Szandor LaVey") at lower right, 1954, with white painted wood strip molding, light surface soiling, a few abrasions, faint stretcher bar mark along top edge.

An early painting by San Francisco-based Church of Satan founder Anton Szandor LaVey, who published his Satanic Bible in 1969. LaVey later said to have been influenced by the double moral standards of church goers that he witnessed while working in the carnivals. They would attend the bawdy Saturday night shows and then the very next morning show up at the tent revivals. He became a popular figure into the 1970s with articles about him in major magazines and appearances on television shows such as Donahue and The Tonight Show.
