Fritz Bultman: American Abstractionist

Saturday, October 19, 2013 - 1388901600

Details

Fritz Bultman (1919-1985), an artist from Louisiana, took part in a seminal moment in American art. In the 1940s and ’50s, Abstract Expressionism emerged, placing New York at the center of the global art world and catapulting the artistic careers of Willem de Kooning, Jackson Pollock, and many others. Bultman worked alongside these famous peers, including Robert Motherwell who cited Bultman as among the most talented of their generation. The Louisiana Art & Science Museum's fall exhibition focuses upon Fritz Bultman’s life and his artistic influences, who included Hans Hofmann and Henri Matisse, during this exciting period in American history. It also takes a fresh look at his abstract paintings and vibrant collages, many of which have rarely been shown. Preview the exhibit while attending LASM's annual gala, "A Bold Expression," on October 18. Opens to the general public October 19. Tuesday—Sunday at 100 South River Road. (225) 344-5272 or lasm.org.
