The work of José Guerrero, especially after the artist moved to New York in 1950, is clearly influenced by the predominant movement of the period: the American Abstract Expressionism of Kline, Rothko, Still, Motherwell, Newman and others. Nevertheless, the painter from Granada brings a different poetic sensibility to this style, expressed in the use of a less sombre and transcendental colour palette. He also works with generous and voluptuous gestures that occasionally—as in the case of Rojo y negro—refer to certain figurative forms, to the traces or implicit impressions that are hinted at in the paintings of Klee or Matisse.
