About

A painting by Thomas Downing. "Red Fours" is an abstract, acrylic on canvas by American Color Field artist Thomas Downing. "Red Fours" is executed in a palette of reds, pinks and pale blues and depicts a field of dots in a precise pattern. Downing's distinctive style: circles of varying hues and sizes that appear to float within undefined space, each particular set of colors on a different plane confront the viewer with an essentially flat composition that simultaneously alludes to space. Signed verso, "1962 "Tho. Downing." Provenance: The Estate of the Artist Gary Snyder Fine Art Private Collection, Florida
