Composition, painted 1936-1937
together with the khorkom paintings of 1936, these influences have been brought to full flourish in composition. given the artist’s scant resources, he primarily focused on drawings because paper was so much cheaper than buying oil paints and canvas. thus, composition was a rather large, demonstrative painting for the time—a bold, courageous act for the artist. in 1951, composition was also one of only two paintings to be selected for the museum of modern art’s major watershed exhibition that effectively shifted the center of the art world from paris to new york. called “abstract painting and sculpture in america,” this large and important survey included many of the most important abstract expressionist artists including jackson pollock, mark rothko and robert motherwell. there, gorky’s composition was installed next to agony (1947), now in the museum of modern art, new york.
