Craig Ellwood (1922 – 1992)
Tesoruccio III
Geometric Abstractionist work depicting a series of multi-colored, interrelating shapes. Acrylic on canvas.

Italy, 1978

Ellwood’s work reveals a brilliant feeling for color, line, proportion, and optical effect. Ellwood met Josef Albers at Yale in the late 1950s, and the great color theorist became a mentor to Ellwood, encouraging him to paint. Ellwood would receive technical lessons from Lorser Feitelson, one of the four artists whose work gave a name to the Hard Edge school of abstraction. After painting for years as a pastime, Ellwood closed his architectural practice in 1977 and moved to Italy to paint full time.
