"Vicente goes beyond subjects and conventions in order to unravel opposite emotions contained in the very substance of the shapes he plays with his work. His boundless passion, manifested in a gestural visual language, channels poetic interpretations fed by numerous intellectual influences and shapes the special creative sensibility of this man who, in search for the limits of artistic expression, was able to surpass paths forged by previous avant-gardes."
Charo Otegui Pascual, excerpted from Concrete Improvisations: Collages and Sculpture by Esteban Vicente.

Published by Grey Art Gallery/Museo de Arte Cont Esteban Vicente/Acción Cultural Española.
Foreword by Lynn Gumpert, Ana Martínez De Aguilar. Text by Daniel Haxall, Edward J. Sullivan.

The Spanish-born painter, collagist and sculptor Esteban Vicente (1903-2001) is one of Abstract Expressionism's most independent-minded artists, and yet still among its most neglected figures. Illuminated by a plein-air warmth of color, his Matisse-like paper collages and paintings express an ease of touch, replacing gestural angst with love of materials. Concrete Improvisations: Collages and Sculpture by Esteban Vicente provides a major reassessment of Vicente's career, focusing on his collages and assemblage-like sculptures. Alongside essays by Daniel Haxall and Edward J. Sullivan, the volume also includes selections from interviews conducted by Sullivan with Vicente's friends and colleagues Irving Sandler and Elizabeth Frank, as well as with several of his best-known students: Chuck Close, Dorothea Rockburne and Susan Crile.
