Harold Garde

American painter and printmaker Harold Garde, whose extraordinary achievements in Abstract and Figurative Expressionism, from the 1950s onwards, made a significant yet under-recognized contribution to Post-War American art.


His seven-decade career spans the New York Abstract Expressionists’ later generation of the 1950s - 1960s; turns increasingly towards gestural abstraction into the figurative, mythic possibilities of Neo-Expressionism of the 1980s - 1990s; and remains vitally inventive to present day.

Harold Garde’s major bodies of work in painting, drawing, and prints reveal his early and vigorous engagement with Abstract Expressionism as well as the persistent innovation of his mature artistic experimentation. 


Garde lives and works in Belfast, ME and New Smyrna Beach, FL. Additional information available on www.HaroldGarde.com
