Topless Corfu. Howard Behrens, 19XX.
[MEDIA TYPE]. 39″x48″, matted and framed.
American expressionist painter Howard Behrens (1933-2014) pioneered a knife-painting style he called “controlled spontanaiety.” Combining the influences of Claude Monet, Auguste Renoir, Camille Pisarro, Alfred Sisely, and Italian palette knife painter Nicola Simbari, he exaggerated light and dark to create a rich, distinctive, texturized style. Behrens was an innovator in serigraphy, together with Soho Editions creating the world’s first collections of hand-embellished, limited-edition prints.
