Nicolas Carone
The Fictitious Image

"I don't think Abstract Expressionism was a concluded idea. I think it was in flux; it was becoming something. And it went two ways: to the very abstract or even minimal; and on the other hand, to a configuration of forms that identify with nature or to unconscious elements. There's something of life's experience that can give more to a picture."

Nicolas Carone


The gallery is proud to be exhibiting work from the Estate of Nicolas Carone. The exhibition will consist of painting, drawing and sculpture representing heads and the figure.

Nicolas was born in 1917 in New York City and was an active artist with the New York School of Abstract Expressionists. His work is in the collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, the Baltimore Museum of Art and the Mobile Museum of Art.

He died in 2010 at the age of 93.
