Recent Acquisitions: Modern and Contemporary Prints

Saturday August 24
Augen DeSoto
716 NW Davis St.
In Augen’s front gallery, George Johanson’s dreary monotypes make little impression. Gallery-goers who venture farther back into the space, however, will be rewarded with an astonishing collection of prints by world-renowned historical artists. Highlights are works on paper by two second-generation Abstract Expressionists, Joan Mitchell and Sam Francis. Both prints are small masterpieces of jubilant color and form, superimposing organic shapes atop immaculate backgrounds. Mitchell’s and Francis’ work differed from first-generation Ab-Ex exemplars such as Jackson Pollock, in that their compositions exploited the figure/ground relationship rather than the “all-over-ness” of filled-to-the-gills picture planes. Mitchell and Francis were among the top talents of the Ab-Ex movement, and therefore of modern art itself. Through Aug. 31.
