Nude on Green II, gouache c. 1954, by George Zachary Constant
This gouache work, by Greek-American artist George Zachary Constant, dates to circa 1954. A young woman fills the frame, looking warily at the viewer. The details of her face and torso are created with striking black lines, while her skin is a muted white.
A continuous evolution of man’s relation to nature and the universe can be traced in the work of George Constant (1892-1972). In 1940 Constant founded the Society of Modern Painters and Sculptors, serving as the group’s President. He was one of several Greek artists who formed the "Koumbaroi" group, who painted in the Shinnecock Hills of eastern Long Island during the 1940s and 1950s. He received the Purchase Prize from the Library of Congress in 1947 and was awarded the highest honor for achievement that the Greek government can bestow, the Phoenix Cross. Today his work can be found in numerous public institutions including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the National Portrait Gallery, the Philadelphia Museum and the Brooklyn Museum of Art.
