Bill Rice: Manet of New York

Image coming soon.

John Yau reviews Bill Rice: Paintings & Works on Paper recently on view at Steven Harvey Fine Art Projects.

Yau writes that Rice was "A painter, film actor, and an unaffiliated scholar [and] one of the central figures in the various bohemian enclaves that gathered and overlapped in the Lower East Side of the 1960s."  He continues "[Rice's] paintings are original in that [he] took the genre of the urban landscape and made it something all his own: the city at night when forbidden desire rises to the surface. In this regard, he was the Edouard Manet of New York."
