January 1 was Public Domain Day — here’s a look at artists whose work is leaving copyright behind this year (although not in the United States).
Jason Andrew of the Estate of Jack Tworkov recently uncovered a new cache of Thanksgiving photographs featuring some of the leading Abstract Expressionists.
In the realm of high-modern abstract painting, the color purple rarely gets the spotlight. So it’s exciting to watch Hans Hofmann play with purple and give it center stage in a pair of works on view right now at Ameringer McEnery Yohe.
Painter Regina Bogat has been involved the New York art world since the 1950s. (I promised not to reveal her age.) She had her first solo exhibition in the city in 1956, at Terrain Gallery, and her most recent one, Stars, which features colorful, vigorously messy paintings of different variations on the shape, is currently on view at Williamsburg’s Art 101. I had never heard of Bogat before this exhibition, nor seen her art, as I suspect many people haven’t. Who knows how many under-recognized women artists have been lost to the male-centric narrative of art history?
