An Intimate Circle presents drawings and photographs by George Tooker’s close friends Paul Cadmus, Jared French, and Margaret French, as well as by George Platt Lynes, who was part of their wider circle in New York City. Complementing the memorial exhibition George Tooker: Reality Returns as a Dream, the works reflect the creative environment that these artists cultivated, which was largely independent of an art world increasingly dominated by abstraction.
Gallery Talk Thursday, June 9, 6:30PM: Curators Robert Cozzolino (Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts) and Marshall Price (National Academy Museum), organizers of George Tooker: A Retrospective (2009), discuss Tooker’s art and life. Artist Kurt Kauper will moderate the discussion. Please RSVP by June 7th: 212-247-2111.
