Nick Carone: Shadow Dance



Nick Carone (1917-2010) was one of the original Abstract Expressionists, a group also named the New York School that included Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, Mark Rothko, Lee Krasner, and Franz Kline. From 1947-1951 Carone lived in Rome and had his first solo exhibition there in 1949. When he returned to New York City his work was regularly exhibited and like his more famous peers, was collected by the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Whitney Museum of American Art, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, and other prestigious institutions. Carone’s commercial career was eclipsed by the advent of Pop Art in the early 1960s and he withdrew from the gallery world. He continued to work however, and was one of the founders of the New York Studio School, known for its program of abstraction and figuration. This exhibition includes paintings and works on paper as well as the rarely exhibited enigmatic sculptural heads he carved from fieldstone found on his property in Italy.
