Known as a great colorist, the American modernist Milton Avery (1885-1965) focused on serene mood, harmony, and rounded forms in a dialogue between line, shape and muted color. Avery is considered one of the most sophisticated 20th century artists, and although never associated with a particular movement, influenced succeeding generations of artists including Color Field painters Mark Rothko and Adolph Gottlieb. This is the first museum retrospective of Avery's nudes. This exhibition has been organized by Harmon-Meek Gallery, Naples, Florida.
