The exhibition will include works by Jules Olitski, Dan Christensen, Kenneth Noland, Larry Zox, Darryl Hughto and Susan Roth, and others who emerged in the 1960’s and ‘70’s and whose work was the continuation of the Abstract Expressionism of Hans Hofmann, Adolph Gottlieb, Robert Motherwell, Helen Frankenthaler, Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko.
Clement Greenberg, widely regarded as one of the most perceptive critics of Mid-Century American Modernism, wrote:
“If the label Abstract Expressionism means anything, it means painterliness: loose, rapid handling, or the look of it; masses that blotted and fused instead of shapes that stayed distinct: large and conspicuous rhythms, broken color; uneven saturations or densities of paint, exhibited brush, knife or finger marks...in short, a constellation of qualities.”
This is the second collaborative exhibition between Frederick Holmes And Company - a Seattle gallery which regularly presents European and American 20th Century Modern and Post-War along with emerging national and international artists; and Schulte Fine Art - private art dealers who, before moving to Seattle, owned galleries in New York and New Jersey, specializing in Post-War American Abstraction.
Both parties share a common commitment to introducing more people, regardless of their expertise in collecting, to the experience of owning important, historically critical, and timeless art.
