"Allegheny Roads" (1970s)

 Featured William Lewis (1918-2020) Work: “Allegheny Roads”, c. 1970s

 

As Lewis expanded his media modality in the 1970s, his depictions explored the balance between modernist abstraction and traditional representationalism. This duality emerged in fragmented landscapes – Depictions sectioned into lines and planes which fit together much like a topographic schematic. These wide, expansive views were created with rudimentary lines of Abstract Expressionism and the depth of Pop Art assemblage techniques.

This style combination is fully realized in “Allegheny Roads”, in which Lewis presents a satirical depiction of Allegheny County (Pittsburgh), Pennsylvania, as a small and isolated settlement in a sea of hills. “Allegheny Roads” is an acrylic mixed media collage on canvas. Signed "W. Lewis" lower right, titled "Allegheny Roads" verso. Image measures 18 x 30” high, framed 19 1/4 x 31 1/4" high overall.
