Estate of Emilio Cruz
New York, NY
$7,000 to develop a website on the painter, organized by estate executor Patricia Cruz. Originally from the Bronx, Cruz participated in the Provincetown art scene during his early development as an artist. Influenced by Kline and DeKooning, he created figurative expressionistic work, defined through a painterly execution of intense colors and geometric lines, some of which reached proportions that were twice human scale.
