Georges Bergès Gallery is pleased to announce the arrival of Nicolas Carone, Jackson Pollock, and Willem de Kooning to historic SoHo. Three Mile Harbor Road serves as a visual testament to the relationship and strong connection between the artists, particularly during the early to mid 1950’s, when Pollock found a home for Carone on Three Mile Harbor Road in East Hampton, New York. It’s the home where Carone created some of his most notable masterpieces including Psychomachia III and Sacred Abandonment, and where he and Pollock are said to have created a work together, and where de Kooning later lived and authored a private journal; all of which will be featured in this historic exhibition.
Nicolas Carone (1917-2010) was an internationally acclaimed American early-abstract expressionist painter whose works can be found in the collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art, MoMA, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Mobile Museum of Art, and British Museum of Art, among other highly regarded and prestigious art institutions. Some of Carone’s works available at GBG will include Psychomachia III (1958) (Psychomachia II can be found at the Whitney Museum of American Art), Sacred Abandonment (1957), Nuptial Waters (1957), and other untitled pieces.
Jackson Pollock (1912-1956) was an American abstract expressionist painter whose techniques included pouring or splashing paint onto horizontal surfaces and using the force and movement of his body to paint. Some of his works include Number 17A (1947); One: Number 31 (1950), now found at MoMA; Mural on Indian red ground (1950), now found at Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art; Easter and the Totem (1953), now at MoMA;, Ocean Greatness (1953), now at Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum; among other major celebrated works.
Willem de Kooning (1904-1997) was a Dutch-American abstract expressionist painter who first rose to prominence between the years 1948-1953. He created some of the most iconic paintings in the history of modern art including his “Women” series. His work is in the permanent collections of the Tate Modern, London; The Museum of Modern Art, New York; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; and the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.
