Modern And Contemporary Works

Jack Rutberg Fine Arts opens “Modern & Contemporary Works: A Revolving Exhibition” featuring more than 60 paintings, drawings, prints, and sculpture by an impressive range of artists. The exhibition will continue to evolve with fresh installations.

Highlights of Works on View:

  • Spanish Contemporary artist Jordi Alcaraz, an emerging force, following his recent museum exhibition in Barcelona and celebrated exhibitions in Madrid, Cologne and Berlin, is shown with several of his poetic constructions.
  • Patrick Graham, Ireland’s leading contemporary painter, currently featured in the major museum exhibition, “The Quick and the Dead,” at the Hugh Lane in Dublin, Ireland through September, 27, 2009 is represented here with several works including a monumental painting. Also included in our exhibition are drawings by Timothy Hawkesworth – one of the four artists featured “The Quick and the Dead.”
  • Llyn Foulkes is represented through a uniquely surreal painting and assemblage. Foulkes was recently featured in a memorable installation of his works at the Hammer Museum’s exhibition, “Nine Lives: Visionary Artists from L.A.”
  • Ruth Weisberg’s formidable painting, “The Blessing,” is shown following its inclusion as the seminal work of her recent solo exhibition, “Ruth Weisberg: Guido Cagnacci and The Resonant Image” at the Norton Simon Museum.
  • Following his critically acclaimed exhibition of “Paintings of the 1960s,” Hans Burkhardt is represented with several compelling works from the 1930s, 40s and 50s.
  • Jerome Witkin, who continues to elicit wide recognition as one of the most extraordinary contemporary narrative painters, is included with his trademarked psychologically charged works.
  • Francisco Zúñiga, Mexico’s most important twentieth century sculptor, is represented by drawings and works in bronze. We take this opportunity to invite institutions, collectors, and dealers to submit works for the forthcoming publication of Volume V of the Zúñiga Catalogue Raisonné.
  • Sam Francis is represented by a large-scale painting, an exceedingly rare early gouache of the 1950s and other unique works on paper, as well as original color and black and white lithographs.
