A lush collection of John Grillo's artwork that spans two decades

Filled with images of the vivid and luminous paintings that artist John Grillo is best known for, this vibrant exploration observes the many facets of the artist's abstract expressionist work. Spanning the years between the 1950s and the late 1960s, more than 60 color plates showcase Grillo's abilities to express pure emotion on canvas via color and texture, to embrace "accidents," and to celebrate painting itself as a communicative action. Art students, historians, and collectors will savor this brilliant collection and the distinct perspective it offers for viewing the breadth of Grillo's contributions to the abstract expressionist movement.
