Highlights from the Collection (Early 2019)
Jan 18–Apr 28, 2019
Clyfford Still & Photography is surrounded by a new display of the permanent collection installed throughout all of the Lanny and Sharon Martin Galleries. Spanning the artist’s 60-year career, this presentation features approximately 35 paintings, 35 works on paper, and a sculpture by Still. The mostly chronological narrative begins in the 1920s with traditional landscape subjects and Depression-era figure studies that transform into quasi-abstractions. These culminate with Still’s groundbreaking wartime abstractions and monumental late paintings that show the artist at the height of his powers.
