THE ESTATE of RAYMOND HAN
(1931 - 2017)
Han’s oeuvre spans over four decades. Comprised of floral and object still lifes, figurative compositions and late abstractions, it is characterized by the search for poetry in simplicity. Through Han, subjects are rendered with a passion for detail and a unique sensibility for color. Though largely de-saturated, compositions often contain a subtle and yet dramatic color accent. Finely nuanced, Han’s works often draw an aesthetic comparison to a variety of classic references, such as Renaissance frescoes and the works of Giorgio Morandi or Nicolas Poussin, for example. Above all, it is Han’s crisp delineation of objects and ability to employ his signature palette to evoke a mood of calm transcendence that make for a body of work that appears timeless.
Raymond Han was born in Honolulu, Hawaii in 1931. His work is in the permanent collections of The Honolulu Museum of Art, the Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute, Yale University, Goldman Sachs and Company, and the Picker Art Gallery, Colgate College, among many others. He lived and worked in upstate New York, until his death in 2017.
