Herman Cherry - Untitled, 1959

From the Parrish Art Museum site: "The painter Herman Cherry began spending summers in East Hampton in 1964 and maintained a residence there until his death in 1992. He studied with Thomas Hart Benton around 1930, and his early work reflects an interest in American Regionalism, Mexican mural painting, and Chinese art. In 1945, after years of travel, he settled in New York, and by the 1950s his work had become abstract. Cherry was known for his skillful interplay of color and shape, and he painted in this vein for the rest of his career."
