Lucien Abrams: A Cosmopolitan in Connecticut
March 21 through June 1, 2014
Lucien Abrams, Dejeuner en Provence, c. 1910, McNay Art Museum
Organized by the Old Jail Art Center in Albany, Texas, this exhibition is the first to examine Abrams' work. Algerian watering holes, New England circus tents, and shady plazas of the American southwest are just a few of his diverse subjects. Abrams is an important figure in the evolution of American Impressionism in the 20th century, with his work representing an attempt to maintain the vitality of such a key modern movement.
