The painting collection of the late Emilio Grossi will be showcased at Les Beaux Arts Gallery March 4 through April 12.
A true American art modernist, Grossi loved precision, color harmony, and control of execution. His work is the product of his studies with color theory artist Josef Albers and architectural design training with I.M. Pei. Grossi’s style is pure precisionism; he tries to find the structure underlying reality and combines flat geometric planes of abstraction with representational subject matter. His paintings of electric plants, industrial buildings, and bridges are perfect examples. Late in his career, he created urban landscapes that are an exercise in perspective and color. Grossi had a parallel career in painting and photography and the influence of the precisionist Charles Sheeler had an impact on his work throughout his life.
Grossi earned his BFA from Rhode Island School of Design and his MFA from Yale University. He was an adjunct professor at the Cooper Union in New York City and his work was selected by Edward Steichen for the Museum of Modern Art.
