KERRY JAMES MARSHALL: Selects
Jean Augusta Dominque Ingres, "Odalisque in Grisaille" circa 1824-34 - this painting is a smaller, simpler, unfinished repetition of the celebrated Grande Odalisque.
Concurrent with his solo Mastry, Kerry James Marshall Selects, reveals inspiration and references contained in his paintings.
From the website " Marshall worked with Ian Alteveer, co-curator of the retrospective Kerry James Marshall: Mastry, to handpick works from across The Met collection that are at once touchstones for his artistic life and inspirations for his practice—symbols of the grand traditions he has worked to reinvent. Representing a richly textured group of objects that range from the 16th century to the present, the display includes paintings by Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres, Romare Bearden, and Aaron Douglas; drawings by Paolo Veronese and Georges Seurat; photographs by Roy DeCarava and Walker Evans; a Senufo oracle figure; Japanese woodblock prints; and others.
Last week I had the opportunity to see Marshall's important career survey exhibition. It closes Sunday @metbreuer Catalog available. Opening at @mocalosangeles on March 12th.
