Lowell Nesbitt (New York, Maryland, 1933-1993) Important “Seven Electric Flowers” Oil on Canvas painting. Measures 84 x 160 inches. This painting was featured in the April 1977 Architectural Digest article which was a feature on Lowell Nesbitt’s New York City Studio. The painting was hung in the four-story atrium near the pool (See Photo). Formerly the site of a police stable that he purchased and Edward F. Knowles redesigned, the area measured in excess of 12,500 square feet. This studio and living space included an indoor swimming pool, a four-story atrium and a rooftop entertainment area; Nesbitt labeled the facility “The Old Stable.” This provided a fitting backdrop to the artist’s larger-than-life artworks. Nesbitt’s studio became a popular gathering place for major art world figures, celebrities and dignitaries including Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Indiana, Jasper Johns, Robert Motherwell, Larry Rivers and James Rosenquist. This monumental space was also featured in articles in the New York Times and the Washington Post in the late 1970s.
