Requiem for War

Paintings by Hans Burkhardt

July 11 — October 25, 2003

“Requiem for War” is a landmark survey of Hans Burkhardt’s war paintings. This exhibition features an extraordinary range of work from 1938 to 1993, in which Burkhardt employed his abstract expressionist symbolism to explore the furthest emotional ranges of his responses to and perceptions of war, from the Spanish Civil War and World War II through the Vietnam War, Desert Storm, and the conflicts of Latin America and the Middle East.
