Milton Avery Revisited: Works from the Louis and Annette Kaufman Collection
June 5-July 20, 2003
This exhibit features nineteen paintings, three drawings and six prints from the private collection of Louis and Annette Kaufman, who were long-time personal friends of Avery.
An important American modernist painter, Avery is often referred to as the "American Matisse." Nearly two decades of the artist's early career in the 1930's and 1940's are explored in this selection of works. Several early still-life paintings illustrate Avery's interest in European Post-Impressionism and Modernism. Later landscape paintings and portraits begin to show the artist's growing experimentation with simplifying forms and brightening his colors. A group of self-portraits describes both the development of Avery's aesthetic and his growing sense of mortality.
