SKU: 368 Category: Tags: ,


At the heyday of Abstract Expressionism, Alvin Ross was an anomaly; his precise, finely-wrought still life paintings, done on a small scale, were the antithesis of the large, impetuously brushed evocations of the Expressionist vein rampaging around him.

Ross was a thoughtful artist, an historian as well as a student of art. His frequent trips abroad confirmed his sense of the past, and his use of realism in a period dominated by abstraction in art.
