1970s HARD-EDGE ABSTRACT ACRYLIC ON CANVAS BY NICK LUTTINGER
CONTACT US HERE ABOUT THIS ITEM.
A colorful, hard-edge abstract painting in various shades of blue, green, and orange by New York artist Nicholas Luttinger. Dating to the 1970s, the canvas is unframed, but the image wraps around the side of the stretcher, giving the painting a literal depth of 1 ½" and allowing it to be readily displayed sans frame. Signed along one edge.
NICHOLAS LUTTINGER (b. 1942) grew up in Far Rockaway, Queens, in New York City. He enrolled at the Pratt Institute in 1959, graduating with a BFA in Graphic Arts and Illustration in 1965. Luttinger spent several years as a graphic designer while pursuing his passion for painting and printmaking. His technical knowledge and skill with various painting media—including oil, acrylic, and wax—are exceptional. He is equally skilled as a printmaker in aquatint, engraving, intaglio methods, and stone lithography.
Luttinger has spent over four decades creating art that explores the psyche and emotions while pursuing his unique vision. Since the 1970s, his graphic work has been in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City (MoMA). A drawing by the artist is held by the Estate of Jerome Robbins, the great choreographer of the past century. Luttinger’s work and vision will stand as an important contribution to the art of the late 20th century.
Luttinger is also an accomplished Spanish-language interpreter.
