Magical, comprehensive Milton Avery exhibition opens at Royal Academy of Arts

"Little Fox River" (1942) is reproduced from Milton Avery, published to accompany the Royal Academy's "brilliant" exhibition on the "experimental dreamer whose sublime landscapes and beach scenes paved the way for Rothko, Pollock and Newman," according to a recent review in the Guardian. Of Avery's beach scenes, essayist Edith Devaney writes, "Of the sixty or so oil paintings Avery created in Provincetown or based on Provincetown sketches, only five or six contain human figures. The seascape is transformed into areas of thin washes of oil paint, often with little or no visible brushwork. Many of these works… are brilliant abstract treatments of nature, their subjects unidentifiable without their titles."
