Overview

An inspirational collection of one artist's work from the last 30 years

Artist John Grillo’s contributions to the expressionist movement from the 1980s through the present are explored in this colorful examination of his work. Through the use of color and texture and by embracing “accidents,” Grillo was known for relaying his expression of pure emotion directly onto the canvas. More than 60 color plates of the artist’s figurative theme works, including “Circus,” “El Dorado,” “Tango,” “Jealousy,” “Opera,” and the “Marilyn” series, are included in this compendium and offer the unique opportunity to observe the artist’s emotion firsthand. Art historians, students, and enthusiasts will appreciate this complete, modern collection of a seminal artist’s work.
