Past Exhibition


July 8 — September 3, 2005

Opening with a reception Friday, July 8 at 7 PM, Jack Rutberg Fine Arts at 357 North La Brea Avenue in Los Angeles presents a summer exhibition rich with “Acquisitions” of paintings, drawings, prints, and sculpture.

Highlights of this large show span the dawn of modern art, with works by Francisco Goya, Toulouse-Lautrec, Matisse and Vlaminck as well as other modern masters. Particularly noteworthy are two unique paintings: a Mark Tobey canvas, exceptional in a rare, larger size, with the artist’s lyric de-constructions into luminous, vibrating forms; and an unusual George Grosz oil, an arresting table scape executed in 1927, whose serene domestic subject and sensual palette belies the approaching war.
