Out East

Selling Exhibition | Southampton | 20 June – 11 July 2021


Artists have been inspired by the bucolic surroundings of the East End of Long Island ever since the expansion of the railroad in the late nineteenth century. Over the next one hundred years artists continued to flock to the area, inspired by the unique landscape and the respite it offered from the oppressive heat of New York City summers. The close proximity of the land to the sea opened up and inspired the fluid abstractions of Willem de Kooning, Helen Frankenthaler, and Lee Krasner, while the vast expanse of space injected new vitality into the works of Fairfield Porter and Roy Lichtenstein. In 1971, even the most ardent of city dwellers, Andy Warhol, acquired his clifftop estate near the historic Montauk Lighthouse. Together, the works on view in Out East capture the magic of this special place, and reveal how the beguiling beauty of Long Island spurred a rich and varied body of work.
