Menil Collection opening reception: Barnett Newman: The Late Work
Barnett Newman: The Late Work is organized by the Menil Collection and curated by chief conservator Bradford A. Epley and curator Michelle White. On view through Aug. 2.
This will be the first exhibition to focus on Newman's production in the last five years of his life. It will present a focused selection of his paintings from 1965-1970, alongside major paintings by Newman that were produced throughout his career from The Menil Collection and on loan from other important museums and private lenders in the United States and Europe. Significant loans include Day Before I, 1951 and White Fire IV, from the Kunstmuseum, Basel.
