Brown Bag Lunch: The Art & Career of David Einstein presented by Deputy Director, Preston Metcalf

Date: March 21, 2018 | Time: 12:00 - 12:45 pm

Admission: Free!


After the advent of Color Field painting in the 1950s, it was up to artists such as David Einstein to pick up the movement and carry it across the country, expanding its ideas and influence to new generations of artists. For 50 years, Einstein continued to push the boundaries of abstraction, from his early Color Field paintings to dynamic gestural works, bringing to California a tradition and style that would have lasting impact on 20th and now 21st Century art. Please join Deputy Director Preston Metcalf as he shares the amazing career of David Einstein, using the current exhibition, David Einstein: A 50-Year Retrospective," currently on view at the Triton, as his illustrative guide.

[The accompanying exhibition book, "David Einstein: A 50-Year Retrospective" featuring ten academic essays on the artist and his career, along with more than a hundred reproductions if his work, is currently on sale in The Shop at the Triton Museum of Art.]
