Why We Love It

This powerful abstraction by Theodoros Stamos is one of the finest examples we’ve ever seen of his work. The vibrant color harmonies, bold composition, and gestural paint-handling are all characteristic of his mature painting style.

The Value

In the years following Theodoros Stamos’s death, his artistic reputation and the value of the paintings were artificially suppressed because of his involvement in the settlement of Mark Rothko’s estate. The fact is that the quality of his work speaks for itself, and in time we are confident he will take his rightful place among the top tier of Abstract Expressionist painters.  With this in mind, we believe Soundings is an extraordinary collecting opportunity.
