Against the tide

Artist Balcomb Greene's strong features stand out against one of his shimmering paintings of mountains and sea. Although he has turned his back on the abstract painting which he sponsored when it still was unpopular, he applies lessons he learned from it in his use of light and shadow.

Creator: Greene, Balcomb
