“I have been here painting for many years. I have succeeded in finding simplicity and the caress of austerity. I have been able to become familiar with the light. I am here because I am committed to the light.”
—Armando Reverón, 1949
Armando Reverón developed the modern, monochromatic approach to painting while living in isolation in a hut on Venezuela’s northern shore. Looking closely at the work, viewers can make out elements of a tree, water and a landscape.
