Catalogue Note

"Richard Estes' painting is painting of an instant before it can be shattered into a thousand pieces, into a thousand shrill noises, an equilibrium dreamt of and given form. In this, it is not a painting of impression but of memory; it is surreal." Nico Orengo in: Exh. Cat., Madrid, Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, Richard Estes, 2007, p. 115
