Description
Armenian-born painter Arshile Gorky (c. 190448) was one of the central figures in American art's shift toward abstract art during the first half of the 20th century. This striking exhibit catalog traces the evolution of Gorky's arresting visual style in nearly 200 paintings, drawings, sculptures, and prints from all phases of his career, including a large figurative painting from 1927 known previously only through its preparatory studies. Throughout, some of Gorky's best-known and most powerful works are paired with related pieces or with his meticulous preliminary studies, shedding new light on his artistic process. Illustrated essays, incorporating recently discovered biographical information and photographs, examine his experience of the Armenian genocide (including the death of his mother by starvation), his collaboration with the Works Progress Administration, and his early explorations of abstraction and Surrealism, providing important reassessments of his life and career.
