About

NY SCENE: FACES is an original hand drawn lithograph by the NY figurative expressionist painter, Lester Johnson. Printed using hand lithography techniques on archival Somerset printmaking paper 100% acid free, full bleed image, no margins. NY SCENE: FACES depicts a city street scene portraying two doll-like womens faces looking in opposite directions, two men above them in the background also looking away, not at each other, crowded together on a busy city street. The young women with full wavy auburn hair are the focal point, one wearing lively checkered print dress, the other a strand of white pearls. Easily visible on the upper right corner, one male figure sports a navy blue NY YANKEES cap. The NY SCENE: FACES color palette is comprised of warm flesh tones, coral, pinks, browns, and touches of muted yellow beige, light purple, blue, orange, red and black creating a modern 1980's city street scene portrait,. As a figurative expressionist and member of the Second Generation of the New York School, painter Lester Johnson remained dedicated to the human figure as means of expression through the many stylistic changes of his oeuvre. Johnson exhibited his art at the Martha Jackson Gallery, Zabriskie Gallery, Gimpel & Weitzenhoffer, and James Goodman Gallery in New York as well as having been included in group shows at the Guggenheim, The Whitney, Museum of Modern Art, and Metropolitan Museum of Art. He was elected a member to both the American Academy of Arts & Letters and the National Academy of Design. Johnson lived and worked in New York City (on the Bowery), Springs, Milford (CT), Greenwich (CT), and Southampton, NY.
