Dean, Peter – American Artist

Peter Dean (American, German, 1934 to 1993)

Peter Dean’s apocalyptic art stands in stark contrast to the analytical cool of Minimalism and Pop, the two movements that dominated when Dean became an active participant in the downtown art scene. In 1984, Dean’s paintings, characterized by fantastical figural scenes executed in a heavy impasto of bright colors, were shown alongside those of Munch, Soutine, and Ensor at the Galleri Bellman in New York City. Works by Dean are in the permanent collections of the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; the Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago, IL; the Ghent Museum of Modern Art , Ghent, Belgium; and other museums across the U.S.
