Joseph M. Glasco


Joseph Glasco (January 19, 1925 – May 31, 1996) was an American abstract expressionist painter, draftsman and sculptor. He is most known for his early figurative drawings and paintings and in later years for deconstructing the figure to develop his non-objective paintings building on abstraction of the 1950s.

During his early years in New York, Alfonso Ossorio, Jackson Pollock, Lee Krasner and others were friends and influences. Other influences on Glasco's art included Jean DuBuffett and Hans Hofmann. Later in his life, Glasco befriended younger artists including Julian Schnabel, and George Condo.
