Los Angeles, CA - Opening with a reception Friday, July 8 at 7 PM, Jack Rutberg Fine Arts at 357 North La Brea Avenue in Los Angeles presents a summer exhibition rich with "Acquisitions" of paintings, drawings, prints, and sculpture.
Highlights of this large show span the dawn of modern art, with works by Francisco Goya, Toulouse Lautrec, Matisse and Vlaminck as well as other modern masters. Particularly noteworthy are two unique paintings: a Mark Tobey canvas, exceptional in a rare, larger size, with the artist’s lyric de-constructions into luminous, vibrating forms, and an unusual George Grosz oil, an arresting table scape executed in 1927, whose serene domestic subject and sensual palette belies the tumultuous period during which it was created.
Contemporary artists have a significant presence in the exhibition, with new works by Ed Ruscha, Frank Gehry, John Baldessari, Jasper Johns, Ellsworth Kelly, Cecily Brown, Susan Rothenberg, and Elizabeth Murray.
Other artists represented in "Acquisitions: Paintings, Drawings, Prints and Sculpture" are Hans Burkhardt, Alexander Calder, Anthony Caro, Paul Cezanne, Marc Chagall, Oskar Fischinger, Sam Francis, Helen Frankenthaler, Arshile Gorky, Patrick Graham, David Hockney, Edward Keinholz, Kathe Kollwitz, Rico Lebrun, Roberto Matta, Man Ray, Joan Miro, Donald Sultan, Ruth Weisberg, Jerome Witkin, and Francisco Zuniga.
The exhibition extends through Saturday, September 3.
Jack Rutberg Fine Arts is located at 357 N. La Brea Ave., Los Angeles, California. Gallery hours are 10 AM to 6 PM Tuesday through Friday, and 10 AM to 5 PM Saturday.
