Artist Cesar Paternosto claims both jazz and tango as major lifelong artistic influences, and his painting’s title, Staccato, connects this work to the rhythm and motion of lively music (the word staccato refers to sounds that are abruptly detached or separated from one another). He has described the painting’s vivid colors and thick, sharply differentiated bands in musical terms.
