Richard Pousette-Dart: East River Studio at LUHRING AUGUSTINE

Organized by Christopher Wool and the artist's daughter painter Joanna Pousette-Dart, this selection of pieces were fabricated while the artist worked in a studio that had been a former brewery on East 56th street. As one of the youngest and most ambitious of the Abstract Expressionists, Pousette-Dart's decision to go big in the early 40's set the standards for the massive scale of "American Type Painting". "The sizes of my paintings in the early days were often determined by the largest roll of canvas I could afford to buy and the largest wall I could tack it on", stated the artist. Seeing these works in context exemplifies the seminal role Pousette-Dart played in the New York painting world from the early 1940s till his death in the early 1990s.
