Featuring a selection of large-scale paintings from three series of the artist’s oeuvre, BLACK AND GRAY, ROME, and NY, the exhibition aims to document Charles Pollock’s transition from relatively monochrome abstractions to explorations related to Color-Field painting in the 1960s.  The installation will include the painting “Rome Ten” (1963), which belongs to the Butler’s permanent collection.

The Estate of Charles Pollock is represented by Jason McCoy Gallery, New York and American Contemporary Art Gallery, Munich.
