Description Oil on canvas painting by Mario Garcia (American, 1927-) titled "Paris" and signed Mario Garcia by the artist on the stretcher and dater '52 by the artist on the back of the canvas. The artist also indicated with an arrow on the stretcher which side was the top. Mario Garcia was a sculptor and painter born in 1927 and active in the New York area. From 1945-1949 Garcia attended the École des Beaux Arts in Lausanne, Switzerland. From 1950 1959 Garcia lived in a red barn in the Hamptons, Long Island that belonged to Barney Rossett, the husband of the artist Joan Mitchell. As a result of their close proximity Garcia became intimately acquainted with Abstract Expressionism through Mitchell and thus became a part of what is referred to as the "second generation" or "second wave" of Abstract Expressionist artists along with Grace Hartigan, Michael Goldberg, and Al Leslie - all of whom more or less built on the work of the master Willem de Kooning. Canvas dimensions are 27.75"H x 87.75"W. As an aside this work is striking standing in a corner!
Styles / Movements Abstract Expressionism, Color Field, Expressionism
