Nicolas Party
Watercolor on paper.
17 1/4 x 23 3/8 inches (43.8 x 59.4 cm)
Gift made in loving memory of Evan J. Reed by his family, Stefanie, Andrew and Rebecca Reed.

Nicolas Party has achieved international recognition for his paintings and works on paper in which vibrant colors and formal schematization transform traditional themes-- landscapes, portraits, still-lifes-- into uncanny compositions of peculiar intensity. He is especially known for his works in pastel-- a medium that lends itself to limitless color explorations-- which he uses not only on paper but also in vast mural compositions. The present watercolor, a dreamy tree landscape based on variations in yellow, exemplifies the artist's sensitive and musical approach to color, reminiscent of James MacNeill Whistler's subtle tonal harmonies.
