JAMES DAUGHERTY: Champion of Color

Exhibition Website

Jun 3 2016 - Jul 24 2016

Mattatuck Museum

Waterbury, CT

Among the first wave of American modernists, James Daugherty (1887-1974) explored the possibilities of pure color, employed in the use, first, of abstract painting, then, in naturalistic compositions that focused on the figure. 

This exhibition, made possible by a generous gift of the artist’s estate, covers the breadth of Daugherty’s career and showcases early modernism, muralist art, and fauvist realism.
