MATTHEW MARKS GALLERY

Albert York

Text by Bruce Hainley, Fairfield Porter, Calvin Tomkins.

Albert YorkDubbed by Calvin Tomkins "the most highly admired unknown artist in America," Albert York (19282009) painted some of the most quietly transcendent pictures of his time over the course of a three-decade career. Because he lived reclusively on the east end of Long Island, far from the contemporaneous artistic foment of Manhattan, his art and its eloquence remained something of a secret, albeit one with extremely devoted followers, such as Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and Lauren Bacall, as well as numerous artists, notably Fairfield Porter, Edward Gorey and Susan Rothenberg. They also include Matthew Marks, who began collecting York's work in 1983. Now, with the cooperation of Davis & Langdale, York's representatives for several decades, Matthew Marks Gallery has created the most comprehensive monograph ever published on the artist. With full-color plates of over 60 works spanning York's career, plus reprints of essays by Tomkins and Porter and a new essay by Bruce Hainley, the book provides the first substantial overview of this beloved artist.

Albert York, "Two Zinnias", c. 1965, is reproduced from Albert York.
