Elegant, intensive and technically accomplished monochromatic painting consisting of several dozen subtly variegated layers of smoothly troweled oil paint on a glassine gesso surface over a convex plywood framework and stretched canvas. By Hungarian/American artist George Peck, titled "Yellow Painting," and signed and dated 1977. A student of Josef Albers at Yale in the mid-1960s, Peck developed his own minimalist style in the mid-1970s that imbued the works with pictorial illusion and strong physicality. The horizontal stripes in the present work, reminiscent of Lucio Fontana, appear concave or convex, receding into or projecting from the bent surface, which manipulates light differently than a flat canvas. Peck has an extensive resume, with works in museums such as the Met, the Brooklyn Museum, the High Art Gallery, and MoMA Stockholm. He was included in a 1979 show at the Susan Caldwell Gallery in New York and the University of Chicago titled "In the Realm of the Monochromatic," alongside Tony De Lap, Robert Mangold, Milton Resnick, Robert Ryman, and Jerry Zeniuk. He was also the subject of a 2002 retrospective at the Kiscelli Museum in his native Hungary, and an accompanying catalog titled "George Peck: Layered Time, Layered Paint." The present work was apparently included in this museum show (see attached image).
