George L.K. Morris and Harry Holtzman, two founding members of the American Abtract Artists are paired in an intimate 2-man exhibit, curated by Kinney Frelinghuysen and Madalena Holtzman, and designed to evoke an informal conversation between the two artists.
This exhibition marks also the beginning of a collaboration between the Estates of George L.K. Morris and Harry Holtzman/Piet Mondrian, with support of the RKD – Netherlands Institute for Art History.
The collaboration aims at sharing, editing and exhibiting new historical materials related and connected to the world of abstract art of
the seminal period of the 30’s and 40’s in Europe and in the USA.
For this reason in this first show will be present also the works of other european protagonists of the time like Jean Hélion, Cesar Domela, and Ben Nicholson, from the permanent collection of the Frelinghuysen Morris House and Studio in Lenox, Massachusetts, and various materials documenting Piet Mondrian’s studios.
