Exhibition Overview

In the early to mid 1980s masterful Washington realist John Winslow engineered a series of stunning changes in his work: Precisely defined spaces became ambiguous, right angles became swooping curves, and once-static figures left gravity behind to dance gracefully and crazily through the air. By radically recasting his art, Winslow set the stage for the surprising, vibrant and equally masterful body of work that is the focus of this exhibition.

A catalog accompanying this exhibition is for sale in the Museum Shop.
