A World in Fragments: 50 Years of Robert S. Neuman’s Vibrant Paintings
A son of the American West, Robert S. Neuman retained an appreciation for the seemingly boundless vistas he meditated on as child and young adult for his entire life. Elko Morning (1967-1971) is composed entirely of horizons; the vivid bands of color that flow playfully across the picture plane pay homage to the chromatic dramas that occur in the Western sky. Inspired by a morning in Elko, Nevada, this expressive canvas depicts how the sun’s creeping glow transforms the palette of both heaven and earth.
