During the course of his long and productive career, Stephen Pace made important contributions to the tradition of Abstract Expressionism. Pace began his formal training at the age of 17 with studies in drawing and watercolor with Robert Lahr. He continued to hone his skills while serving abroad in England and France during World War II by painting views of local landscapes. Upon his return, he studied with Hans Hofmann, who would have a tremendous and immediately visible influence on Pace’s work in the 1950s, particularly in Pace’s use of planes of color to describe volume. In 1960, Pace returned to painting more figural subjects in a style characterized by simplified forms and imaginative colors; he most often painted his immediate surroundings.
