Early David Driskell watercolor

August 13th, 2014

We are pleased to share a very beautiful, early watercolor by renowned master painter, printmaker and curator, David Driskell Colorado Scape, 1960.  was made while Driskell was pursuing a MFA at Catholic University of America in Washington, DC.   The strong, clear colors and the abstracted landscape of this important work indicate Driskell’s early predisposition toward European modernism.  The paintings and prints of this era explore nature–trees in particular as a means of understanding abstract form.  With Colorado Scape Driskell creates a very satisfying overall intensity, fluid and aggressive line balanced by deeply saturated color.
