Eugene Newmann, Self Portrait
ABOUT EUGENE NEWMANN
Eugene Newmann has long been regarded as one of the pioneering artists in the New Mexico abstract art scene. He is well known in the Santa Fe art community for being a ‘painter's painter,’ drawing admiration from many of his peers.
Newmann’s Czechoslovakian heritage (he was born in Bratislava, now the capital of Slovakia), his life in Colombia, where Spanish was his first language, his traditional Jewish upbringing in New York City after age ten, and his education in mathematics and physics at the University of Chicago make him an artist of unusual breadth of knowledge and experience. He moved to Santa Fe with his wife artist Dana Newmann in 1972. Since then, Eugene Newmann has become known as a central figure in New Mexico’s abstract art world.
Newmann's work has been reproduced, cited, or reviewed in many publications, including Art in America, American Artist, House Beautiful, Artspace, Art Voices South, TREND, and THE magazine. It appears in Jan Adleman’s book “Contemporary Art in New Mexico”, and also in the following books published by the Museum of New Mexico Press: “Modern Masterworks from the Collection”, “Artists of 20th Century New Mexico”, “New Mexico Artists at Work”, and, most recently, in “How the West was One.”
