Celebrated for his landscapes that occupy a place between the figurative and the abstract, Nicolas de Stael (1914-1955) was a Russian-born French artist whose works encompass paintings, collage, illustrations, and textiles. This book focuses on the paintings that de Stael produced, arguably his finest, during a single, momentous year very near the end of his life. The paintings were created in the south of France between the summer of 1953 and the autumn of 1954, and were inspired by a journey de Stael took in August of 1953. Together with a group of family and friends, de Stael traveled through Italy, revisiting Naples and Pompeii and culminating in Sicily; the constant transformation of brilliant color in the art, architecture, landscape, and light of Italy made a deep impression on de Stael. The resulting paintings, bold compositions of red, yellow, orange, and green, are saturated with color and free-floating expressiveness.
