Fisherman and Fish

1948 | gouache and watercolor on paper | 57 x 78 cm

"I work on two levels, I try to construct a picture in which shapes, spaces, colors, form a set of unique relationships, independent of any subject matter. At the same time I try to capture and translate the excitement and emotion aroused in me by the impact with the original idea."
Milton Avery
