Includes: Cubism, metaphysical painting, action painting / The Discovery of Collage / Origins of the New York School / Abstract expressionism school or style ? / The human figure and anthromorphic construction / Talking to Marca-Relli / etc. etc. Conrad Marca-Relli (born Corrado Marcarelli; June 5, 1913 Boston – August 29, 2000 Parma) was an American artist who belonged to the early generation of New York School Abstract Expressionist artists whose artistic innovation by the 1950s had been recognized across the Atlantic, including Paris. New York School Abstract Expressionism, represented by Jackson Pollock, Willem De Kooning, Franz Kline, Marca-Relli and others became a leading art movement of the postwar era. Marcarelli (he changed the spelling later in life) and his parents moved to New York City when he was 13 years old. In 1930 he studied at the Cooper Union for a year. He later supported himself by working for the Works Progress Administration, first as a teacher and then with mural painting divisions of the Federal Art Project during this period he won the Logan Medal of the arts. He served in the US Army military service during World War II (1941–1945). Marca-Relli taught at Yale University from 1954 to 1955 and from 1959 to 1960, and at the University of California at Berkeley. In 1953, he bought a house near Jackson Pollock's home in Springs, East Hampton. As his career progressed, he increasingly distanced himself from the New York School. He lived and worked in many countries around the world, moving to Parma, Italy with his wife, Anita Gibson, whom he married in 1951. Conrad Marca-Relli died on August 29, 2000 in Parma, at the age of 87. After the war Marca-Relli joined the "Downtown Group"[3] which represented group of artists who found studios in lower Manhattan in the area bounded by 8th and 12th street between First and Sixth Avenues during the late 1940s and early 1950s. During the late 1940s and early 1950s, he was actively involved in the avant-garde art world in Greenwich Village. These artists were called the "Downtown Group" as opposed to the "Uptown Group" established during the war at The Art of This Century Gallery. His first one-man show was in New York City in 1948. In 1949 Marca-Relli was among the founders of the "Artists' Club" located at 39 East 8th Street. He was selected by his fellow artists to show in the Ninth Street Show held on May 21-June 10, 1951. The show was located at 60 East 9th Street on the first floor and the basement of a building which was about to be demolished. The artists celebrated not only the appearance of the dealers, collectors and museum people on the 9th Street, and the consequent exposure of their work but they celebrated the creation and the strength of a living community of significant dimensions. Conrad Marca-Relli was among the 24 out of a total 256 New York School artists included in the Ninth Street Show and in all the following New York Painting and Sculpture Annuals from 1953 to 1957. These Annuals were important because the participants were chosen by the artists themselves. Marca-Relli's early cityscapes, still lifes, circus themes and architectural motifs are reminiscent of Italian surrealist painter Giorgio de Chirico. Throughout his career, Marca-Relli created monumental-scale collages. He combined oil painting and collage, employing intense colors, broken surfaces and expressionistic spattering. He also experimented with metal and vinyl materials. Over the years the collages developed an abstract simplicity, evidenced by black or somber colors and rectangular shapes isolated against a neutral backdrop. In 1967, the Whitney Museum of American Art gave him a retrospective show. (Wikipedia) Conrad Marca-Relli (* 5. Juni 1913 in Boston, Massachusetts (USA) als Corrado Marcarelli; † 29. August 2000 in Parma, Italien) war ein US-amerikanischer Maler italienischer Abstammung. Er gehörte zu den bedeutenden und frühen Vertretern des Abstrakten Expressionismus der New York School. Conrad Marca-Relli zog mit seiner Familie im Jahr 1927 nach New York und besuchte anfangs eine private Malschule. Ab 1930 studierte er Kunst am Cooper Union Institute in New York. Von 1935 bis 1938 arbeitete er für das WPA (Works Progress Administration - Federal Art Project) und kam mit den Künstlern Willem de Kooning, Franz Kline und John Graham in Kontakt. Nach seinem Militärdienst im Zweiten Weltkrieg war er Mitglied der „Downtown Group“ in New York und der avantgardistischen Szene der Greenwich Village-Künstler. Er war 1949 Gründungsmitglied des "Artists' Club" in New York. Im Jahr 1948 hatte er sein erste Einzelausstellung in New York. Conrad Marca-Relli machte die Collage, seine bevorzugte Bildsprache, zur hohen Kunst. Er entwickelte seine Bilder von frühen Patchwork-Arbeiten über komplexe Malereien zu monumentalen, abstrakt-expressionistischen Collagen, die auch andere Materialien, wie Plastik und Metalle enthielten. In den fünfziger Jahren bekam seine Kunst internationale Aufmerksamkeit: Im Jahr 1956 war Marca-Relli Teilnehmer der XXVIII. Biennale von Venedig im Amerikanischen Pavillon (Thema : „American artists paint the city“) und im Jahr 1959 wurden seine Werke auf der documenta 2 in Kassel mit ausgestellt. Marca-Relli war Dozent an der Yale University von 1954 bis 1955 und von 1959 bis 1960 an der University of California at Berkeley. Im Jahr 1967 veranstaltete das Whitney Museum of American Art eine große Retrospektive seiner Kunst. Seit 1953 lebt er in seinem Haus in Nachbarschaft zu Jackson Pollock in Springs, einem Ortsteil von East Hampton (New York). Mit zunehmendem künstlerischen Erfolg begann er sich von der New York School zu distanzieren. In seinen letzten Lebensjahren zog er mit seiner Frau Anita Gibson nach Parma in Italien, wo er bis zu seinem Tod im Jahr 2000 lebte und arbeitete. (Wikipedia)
