Untitled (Composition in Gray, White, Red, and Bronze)

$8,000.00

Description

Howard Mehring is best known for his hard-edged geometrical color field paintings and screenprints. But he first proved his worth as a painter in far more abstract expressionist work.

This painting is one of the very few of Mehring’s early works which remain extant. An impasto oil on panel, it is expressionist and chaotic.
