Please join us for the opening reception for the exhibition Robert Beauchamp: Four Decades of Works on Paper. Robert Beauchamp (1923 1995) created a vast number of works on paper as well as paintings from the 1950s to early 1990s. A student of Hans Hoffman in Provincetown, Massachusetts in the early 1950s, the artist moved to New York in the mid 1950s where he soon began to show his work in both one-person and group exhibitions. Beauchamps style, although rooted in abstraction under the influence of Hoffman, soon veered toward figurative expressionism, which sustained his art practice for the next four decades.
Through the generosity of Beauchamps widow, Nadine Valenti Beauchamp, the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Art Gallery received a substantial gift of works on paper by Robert Beauchamp. The exhibition traces his long career from the early days in New York to his death in 1995, highlighting a vast array of inventive drawing techniques, a never ending deep engagement with the figure, along with imaginative combinations of personal symbols and narration.
