Paul F. Keene Jr., Variations on a Spanish Theme

Date
1959
Medium
Mixed media on paper
Credit Line
Gift of the Keene Family, 2011
Dimensions
35 x 45 in.

In this large abstract work, Keene intertwines thick black lines, organic shapes, and loosely defined imagery that suggest organic forms, tears, and chains. A self-described “abstract realist,” Keene creates a complex, emotive arrangement of dramatic color, simplified shapes, and veiled figuration.
