Avery's work is seminal to American abstract paintingwhile his work is clearly representational, it focuses on color relations & is not concerned with creating the illusion of depth as most conventional Western painting since the Renaissance has. Even though Avery's early work incorporated elements of Impressionism, his smooth planes of color & combination of figuration & abstraction made him an archetype of American Modernism. Depicting everyday scenes of domestic, city, & country life, painter & printmaker Milton Avery favored simplified forms & the flat application of color, he used broad swaths of luminous color & stylized forms, to capture the essence of a scene without fixating on details, inspired by Henri Matisse & Pablo Picasso. "I try to construct a picture in which shapes, spaces & colors form a set of unique relationships, independent of any subject matter," he once said. Avery was often thought of as an American Matisse, especially because of his colorful & innovative paintings. His poetic, bold & creative use of drawing & color set him apart from more conventional painting of his era. Shipped with care. We ship world wide. All shipments are with tracking.
