Stephen Greene Art

American, 1917-1999

Stephen Greene was born in New York City. He attended the National Academy School of Art and then the Art Students League, and earned a BFA and a MA at the University of Iowa in Iowa City.

Greene studied with Philip Guston and they remained friends until Guston died in 1980. He taught at Princeton University for many years, where he was a teacher to many well-known figures in the art world including Frank Stella and art critic and historian Michael Fried. Greene had more than two dozen solo exhibitions of his work in leading art galleries in New York City. He also taught at the Art Students League of New York for several decades.

After the mid-1950s and until his death, Greene's work was related to abstract expressionism, Color Field painting and Surrealism. His work is represented in numerous public collections, including the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Brooklyn Museum, the Houston Museum of Fine Arts, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the Carnegie Museum of Art and the Tate Gallery in London.
