Carmen Herrera: Lines of Sight

Exhibition Website

Sep 16 2016 - Jan 9 2017

Born May 31, 1915, in Havana, Cuba, Carmen Herrera is still actively working, painting every day in her New York studio.

This presentation of approximately 50 works spans three decades of Herrera's work, beginning with the early abstractions she made while living in Paris in the years following World War II. During that time Herrera forged a geometric hard-edged style that she has retained to this day, employing a distilled palette of just two or three colors for each composition.

The exhibition will include a selection of abstractions from Paris, a rare gathering of her important Blanco y Verde series, as well as a selection of later paintings, drawings, and several of her rare three-dimensional works.
