Hans Burkhardt – Paintings of the 1960s

September 20, 2008 — January 17, 2009

A major survey exhibition, “Hans Burkhardt – Paintings of the 1960s” includes paintings – some of monumental scale – spanning the entire decade of the 1960s, a critical period in the evolution of American art; particularly in Los Angeles, where Burkhardt resided since his arrival from N.Y. in 1937. Works in the exhibition, and its accompanying illustrated catalogue reveal the full range of Burkhardt’s paintings, reflecting both the excitement of a decade marked by the hopeful social revolution that was the 1960s, and works of unprecedented potency in their protest of the Vietnam War.
