Post-War and Contemporary Works on Paper
Hidden Jewels presents a selection of works on paper highlighting the major developments and through lines in abstract painting from the post-war period to the present. The use of geometric structures unites otherwise distinctive paintings by William Baziotes, Audrey Flack, and Günther Förg. An interest in color fields and the effects created by a variety of medias (watercolor, acrylic, tempera, pastel) can be seen across the works of Richard Pousette-Dart, Mark Tobey, Paul Jenkins, Norman Bluhm, Leon Berkowitz and contemporary artist John Knuth, whose experimental processes uses flyspeck. Drawings and paintings by Franz Kline, Michael West, Joan Mitchell, Elaine de Kooning, and Hollis Heichemer chronicle various approaches to gesture painting, while Lucio Fontana and Sam Gilliam explore the physicality of paper with bold punctures and folds.
