ilona keserü and anne truitt in 'epic abstraction: pollock to herrera' at the met breuer, new york, USA

'Epic Abstraction: Pollock to Herrera' extends from the 1940s into the 21st century, exploring large-scale abstract art through more than 50 works from The Met collection, a selection of loans, gifts and new acquisitions. Iconic works from The Met collection, such as Jackson Pollock's ‘Autumn Rhythm' (1950) and Louise Nevelson's ‘Mrs. N's Palace' (1964-77) are shown in conversation with works by international artists such as Ilona Keserü, and by artists of the next generation such as Anne Truitt, who tamed the high-pitched emotionalism of Abstract Expressionism by working with Minimalist styles. 

‘in the tower: anne truitt’ at national gallery of art, washington, USA

19 November 2017
Anne Truitt was one of the leading figures associated with minimalism and was unique in remaining a traditional studio artist. Where artists such as Donald Judd (1928-1994) and Carl Andre (b.1935) abandoned the studio and enlisted industrial fabrication and materials, Truitt painted and sanded her wood sculptures by hand. While many minimalists favoured neutral tones, Truitt, in order to suffuse her work with memory and fe...
