Jim Nutt, ‘Untitled’, 2011, David Nolan Gallery

About Jim Nutt

Jim Nutt was a member of the Imagist and Hairy Who groups centered in Chicago in the 1960s and ‘70s. His graphic, vividly sexual, and psychological work was influenced by African and American Indian art, Surrealism, Expressionism, and the illustration of comic books, opposing the New York abstraction then dominant. In recent decades, Nutt has focused on paintings and graphite drawings of flat, stylized women with signature large noses, painstakingly rendered in terms of pattern, surface, and line quality.

American, b. 1938, Pittsfield, Massachusetts, based in Chicago, Illinois
