Larry Poons (b.1937) is a well-known American abstract painter. A contemporary of Frank Stella, he similarly radically changed his aesthetic within a few years of establishing his reputation in the early 1960's. 

By the 1970's Poons completely abandoned his meticulous grid paintings, that flirted with both Minimalism and Op Art in favour of an approach that seemed to revive Abstract Expressionism by pouring, throwing, and splashing paint onto the surface of the canvas.

This untitled print (aka "Green Rush") is a paradigm of Poon's best work of the 1970's. It demonstrates the artist’s wild energy and dynamic palette through its astonishing rhythmic vitality and dynamic composition.

While Poons experienced tremendous critical and commercial success in the 60's through the 80's in recent years he has re-evaluated and discovered by a younger generation. 

Today Poons' work can be found in dozens of collections throughout the world, including the Art Institute of Chicago, the Metropolitan Museum of Fine Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles and the MoMA to mention only a few.
