The artist and his enviroment: Esteban Vicente

These three artists paid special attention to their natural and architectural environment. As a little escape in these homely days, we rescue some of their works and projects; examples of an extraordinary link between art, nature and architecture. On this occasion we propose an approach to works that were born thanks to a strong connection between the artist and his context.

This selection of paintings reflects the evolution of style in Esteban Vicente’s (Turégano, 1903 – Bridgehampton, 2001) work while making evident his constant fascination with nature. Through them, the artist evokes an eternal sense of landscape, and later his passion for the garden of his house in Bridgehampton, New York – where he lived and worked for over three decades-. This place inspired him to work with light and color as an articulated language of emotional expression.
 
Light and color were central elements of Esteban Vicente’s work from the beginning of his career. Through this selection of three works from different phases of his life, we offer a brief insight to his strong interest and relationship with nature.
