Well, I like him. As I said, a regionalist (not that Gaon doesn't exude New York City). They used to have a huge painting of an arboretum by Bates at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. It hung in a large stairway by a two-storey window looking into Central Park. I consider him a guilty pleasure. When I first encountered him, I thought of Beckmann, but it is really Marsden Hartley that he emulates. Makes sense...an American!

I met him once 15 years ago when he assured me he would never paint again. He was making sculpture. Very charming guy. Unpretentious.

Wes, show us your work in the other art thread!

Rick

Rick
The painting you posted of Manhattan Bridge is fine, it's like Soutine.
Yes Beckmann, (also Picasso!!!) Powerful piece but I don't think I'd want to look at it too much, makes me feel inadequate. It is nice to see work one's never seen before. I must learn how to post images in this size, it's effective.
kind regards
Ross

Isn't Hartley's name actually "Marsden"?

Yes, I typoed. You're one tough customer, Gail White. Show us an artist! Or tell us what you think of Simon Gaon or something!
