New York
Grace Hartigan: No Rules

Sale Overview

A trailblazer at every step of the way, Grace Hartigan was a major figure of the New York arts scene beginning in the 1940s, known for never compromising her artistic vision or creative intuition. Her friends included Willem and Elaine de Kooning, Jackson Pollock, Helen Frankenthaler, Franz Kline, the poet Frank O’Hara and countless other artists and writers. She was arguably the most celebrated female artist of her day, with profiles in Life magazine, Newsweek and Time and her works were placed in several important museum collections. With artworks dating from the 1940s through the 1970s, Grace Hartigan: No Rules captures Hartigan’s radical development from Abstraction to Figuration, exploring the themes and techniques most important to her oeuvre, all in celebration of her fearlessness. As Hartigan once proclaimed, “No rules…I must be free to paint anything I feel.”
