About

Stephen Greene (September 19, 1917 – November 18, 1999) "Fermata #9" Original oil on canvas circa 1977 Abstract painting with amazing texture and color. Simply the best from the 1970s. Modernist art ahead of it's time. Stephen Greene was an American artist known for his abstract paintings and in the 1940s his social realist figure paintings. This vintage painting is in excellent condition and still retains all of its vibrant color after 40+ years. Large and impressive at 30" x 30", housed in a simple frame. This painting will be the centerpiece of any collection. Stephen Greene was born in New York City. He attended the National Academy School of Art and then the Art Students League, and earned a BFA and a MA at the University of Iowa in Iowa City. He studied with Philip Guston, and they remained friends until Guston's death in 1980. Greene taught at Princeton University for many years where he was teacher to many well-known figures in the art world including Frank Stella and art critic and historian Michael Fried. He had more than two dozen solo exhibitions of his work in leading art galleries in New York City. He also taught at the Art Students League of New York for several decades. After the mid-1950s and until his death Greene's work was related to abstract expressionism, color field painting and surrealism. This remarkable painting is from this period. His work is represented in numerous public collections, including the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Brooklyn Museum, the Houston Museum of Fine Arts, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the Carnegie Museum of Art, and the Tate Gallery in London. A fine opportunity to acquire a fantastic original painting by Stephen Greene.
