A Gesture of Color : Karel Appel Paintings and Sculptures, 1947-2004
Karel Appel (1921-2006) is perhaps the most renowned Dutch artist of the latter half of the twentieth century and one of the founding members of the avant-garde Cobra group.
Marking the tenth anniversary of the artist's death, this survey of twenty-two paintings and sculptures provides a fresh look at his oeuvre. A Gesture of Color revisits Appel's early interest in children's art, his stylistic experiments, and his highly personal - and sometimes almost abstract - interpretation of traditional subjects like the nude, the portrait, and the urban or rural landscape.
Published to coincide with an exhibition at Phillips Collection, Washington DC in 2016.
