Fairfield Porter Raw: The Creative Process of an American Master
Fairfield Porter Raw: The Creative Process of an American Master, an exhibition of approximately forty works drawn from the Parrish Art Museum's extensive Porter holdings, will open Sunday, April 11, 2010, and remain on view through June 13. Organized by Klaus Ottmann, Robert Lehman Curator, Fairfield Porter Raw will include not only completed paintings and works on paper but also unfinished paintings and accompanying sketches, drawings, and ephemera. In keeping with the Museum's mission of celebrating the unique and ongoing creative climate of Long Island's East End, these works will be exhibited "raw"—unframed and unmatted—to convey an unprecedented insight into Porter's creative process. The exhibition will be accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue published by the Parrish Art Museum in association with D Giles Limited of London.
