This event has ended.

Esteban Vicente was a Spanish born artist who moved to the United States in 1936. By 1950, he was already a fixture of New York’s downtown art scene. Working alongside Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, and Mark Rothko, Vicente assured his crucial role in the evolution of Abstract- Expressionist discourse. Painting nearly everyday by natural light, he attentively layered abstract and geometric shapes in delicate and sumptuous hues, with acute detail to the time of day and essence of space.

Exhibited here, these late paintings are resplendent with the spatial sensibilities of Vicente’s detailed studies of abstraction, natural space, light, color, and reflection. With a sense of unparalleled immediacy, the artist’s expression of time, painted in richly rendered, ethereal palettes, is felt. Similarly to Claude Monet, Vicente’s delicate tonal shifts illustrate a glimpse of universe that exists in an hour of time, and the subliminal world of color abstractions he subsequently discovered.
