JEROME WITKIN LECTURE AT LCAD : PART 1 OF 2

Jerome Witkin is best known for his monumental scale paintings, which critics have described as being among the great narrative works of our time. This exhibition is dedicated to a cross-section of his equally remarkable drawings and serves to emphasize the critical role of line in his artistic process. To a degree greater than most contemporary painters, Witkin integrates line seamlessly with fluid masses of color. These emphatic contours showcase the importance of shape and structure in his compositions.
