About This Work

The abstract artist Vincent Pepi began his career at Cooper-Union and the Pratt Institute in New York. He traveled to Mexico, Africa and Europe and came to believe that American art would be invigorated by the study of European art. In 1949 he traveled to Rome to work with the artist Beppe Guzzi, returning to America after three years to continue his studies with Hans Hofmann. Pepi was associated with the Abstract Expressionists of the New York School, including artists such as Jackson Pollock, William de Kooning and Franz Kline. Like many of the Abstract Expressionists, Pepi exhibited at the Stable Gallery in Manhattan in the 1950s, where he displayed his unique style of Action Painting.
