Description Signed lower right: Carles

This powerful still life is an incredible example of Carles’ efforts at synthesizing a more geometric approach with his purely expressionistic explorations of color. The composition flows with a dynamic sense of movement and energy, and the color is extraordinarily rich and vibrant. This is truly Carles at his best.

Carles abstract still life paintings were his most groundbreaking and important works. His masterful use of color and his complex abstractions laid the groundwork for such later artists as the Abstract Expressionists. Indeed, many of them counted Carles as an important influence. The value of his paintings has not yet caught up with his importance in the history of American modern art, making works like this one an incredible buying opportunity. We believe that in the years to come Carles will get his due as one of the great American modernists.
