Stephen Pace, Untitled, 58-22, 1958, Oil on canvas, Gift of the Alex Katz Foundation, 2008.4
Dividing his time between studios in New York City and Stonington, Maine, Stephen Pace returned to figural art, working in a style characterized by simplified forms, broad brushwork, and imaginative colors. He most often painted his immediate surroundings, finding inspiration in the coastline and fishing village of Stonington, where he chronicled the working waterfront.
