Donald Stacy is known for his monumental Expressionist and Abstract Expressionist paintings, many of which are executed with large gestural brushstrokes and abstracted angular figures. The artist grew up in New Jersey as a first-generation American of Irish descent and, shortly after high school, served in the United States Navy during World War II. After the war, Stacy studied art at several institutions including the Newark School of Fine Art, the renowned Art Students League where he met his artist wife Bernice Fisher, and the Pratt Graphic Arts Center. Stacy and his wife traveled to France when he received a Fullbright grant to study for two years beginning in 1953. During the 1960s, he taught at the New School for Social Research, the Museum of Modern Art and the School of Visual Art. Bernice and Don spent the remaining years together in a studio living space in Manhattan and held art classes in their Stacy Studio Workshop. Throughout his career, Stacy exhibited his work at multiple institutions including the University of Oklahoma, the Honolulu Museum and Knoedler Gallery, among others.
