Overview

The Park Avenue Cubists: Gallatin, Morris, Frelinghuysen and Shaw / Edition 1

The Park Avenue Cubists explores the work of a group of American artists committed to the belief that American abstraction could make a unique contribution to the evolution of the visual experiments begun by the European Modernists. All were inspired by the work of Braque, Picasso, Gris and Leger which they witnessed at first hand during repeated trips to Paris. Dubbed the 'Park Avenue Cubists' for the wealth and social status that enabled them to promote their own work and patronise that of their fellow members of the American Abstract Artists (AAA), the group included Albert Eugene Gallatin, George L.K. Morris, Suzy Frelinghuysen and Charles G. Shaw.

Featuring essays by Debra Bricker Balken and Robert S. Lubar on the group's place in the history of modern art, along with individual studies of the four artists and an appendix bringing together the key statements written by the artists themselves, this volume provides the first in-depth study of the group.
