Vincent Smarkusz

Undiscovered American Genius in Modern Art

Family Portraits

The artist's mother, brother, and niece figure prominently in many of his works

Through the 1940s, '50s, '60s, and into the 1970s, Vincent Smarkusz creatively honored and mythologized his family, friends, and of course himself, with a combination of illustrative, Expressionist, abstract, symbolist, and Mythic-realism paintings.
