This collection is inspired by the recent exhibition at the Phillips Collection in Washington, DC, Ten Americans: After Paul Klee. In particular work by William Baziotes figured prominently and was the starting point for our own list: Klee, Baziotes, Howard Daum, Dorothy Dehner, Peter Grippe, Stanley William Hayter, Fannie Hillsmith, Hugh Mesibov, Anne Ryan, and Mark Tobey.
|Peter Grippe, The City, 13th Street, Nabisco Crackers(NYC), 1943|
The Phillips show explored key aspects of Klee’s oeuvre that drew American artists working in abstraction: interest in the art of indigenous cultures, the power of symbolic language, and the tapping into the unconscious.
An exhibition of Klee's work at the Museum of Modern Art in 1930 assured that his work was known to the American audience.
Work by Baziotes was also shown in a similar context in From Motherwell to Hofmann: The Samuel Kootz Gallery, 1945-1966, at the Neuberger Museum of Art, Purchase College, NY.
