A Gesture of Color: Karel Appel

Karel Appel (1921-2006) is perhaps the most renowned Dutch artist of the latter half of the twentieth century and one of 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.
