Nicolas Carone

Nicolas Carone was a longtime friend and collaborator of Willem de Kooning and Jackson Pollock beginning in the early 1950s when he settled in East Hampton. Throughout the 1950s he was the director of the influential Stable gallery and a central figure in the New York school.


Though a pivotal figure in the history of Abstract Expressionism, Carone was deeply linked to surrealism and became lifelong friends with Roberto Matta in Rome. Carone lived and painted on the famed Via Margutta from 1947-1951 having won the Rome Prize and a Fulbright Scholarship. His blending of abstracted and representational space, and use of mysterious, biomorphic forms illustrates a lifelong dialog with Matta, Arshile Gorky—whom he learned about from Matta—John Graham as well as de Kooning. 


Nicolas Carone's work is included in numerous important museum collections including the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden and the Baltimore Museum of Art.
