Karl Benjamin and the Evolution of Abstraction,
Karl Benjamin did not set out to become one of the founding fathers of Hard Edge painting. His plan was to write. However, in 1950 while attempting to offer art instruction, along with reading and writing, to his classroom of sixth graders, Karl Benjamin discovered painting, switched his allegiance to the visual arts and the rest is history.
Louis Stern Fine Arts is the exclusive representative of the artist, and is pleased to present the exhibition as a participating gallery in the Getty initiative Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. 1945-1980. The exhibition is accompanied by a full-color catalogue with text by Suzanne Muchnic.
Gallery hours: Tuesday - Friday 10am – 6pm;
