Join the American University, E.A.Carrmean, Jr., and Karen Wilkin for a gallery talk on Jule Olitski's work.

Widely regarded as one of America’s last classic modern painters, Jules Olitski (1922-2007) created brilliant color harmonies and chromatic shifts that became one of the hallmarks of Color Field painting. Olitski enjoyed enormous acclaim in the 1960s and 1970s, and in 1969 he was the first living American artist to be given a solo exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The exhibition presents 30 large-scale paintings from five decades of creative endeavor, ranging from the artist’s first essays into stain painting beginning in 1959 to his visionary last compositions in 2007. Revelation: Major Paintings by Jules Olitski is organized by the Kemper Museum of Art and curated by art historians E. A. Carmean, Jr., Alison de Lima Greene, and Karen Wilkin.
