One to Revere

The Tree (El Arbol), 1931, Armando Reveron

Armando Reveron (1889-1954) was a little known Venezuelan artist prior to a major survey of his work presented in MOMA New York in 2007. The exhibition, organized by John Elderfield, was a revelation. The work emerged as powerful, raw and eccentric, and while comparisons with Gauguin were inevitable in terms of Reveron’s life, the paintings recalled aspects of Robert Ryman’s work and that of another little known Venetian artist Ida Barbarigo.
