Pace Gallery is honored to present the third exhibition of works by Richard Pousette-Dart in New York and the fourth exhibition of the artist with the gallery.
Organized with the Pousette-Dart Estate, Richard Pousette-Dart: Works 1940-1992 will be on view from May 10, 2019 to June 22, 2019. Pace’s exhibition, previously on view at Pace in London in January and February, follows Richard Pousette-Dart: Beginnings, at Kettle’s Yard in Cambridge.
Richard Pousette-Dart was the youngest member of the first generation of Abstract Expressionists; the artist, along with several of his important contemporaries, took part in the formative meeting of Studio 35 and is included in the iconic 1950’s Irascibles photograph. In 1951, Pousette-Dart moved with his young family to Rockland County where a small artistic community had formed. This meant that although he was an influential member of the New York school his remove allowed him to continue to develop and maintain a unique methodology and style.
