Milton Wright’s work captured the spirit and the mutability of the landscape wherever he painted. He referred to himself as a “colorist”.
His works from the 1950s and ’60s are fascinating documentations of the era, and include the building of the Verrazano Bridge, the dredging of the East River, street scenes of Brooklyn, the ever-changing Truro landscape, and the dockworkers and active fishing boat scenes of Provincetown.
His earlier works exhibit a strong palette with Cubist overtones, very different from his later works, which became more impressionistic in style.
