Drawing Papers 122 Richard Pousette-Dart



Best known as a founding member of the New York School of painting, Richard Pousette-Dart (1916–1992) initially pursued a career as a sculptor. During his career, Pousette-Dart created a lexicon of biomorphic and totemic forms that provided rich visual and symbolic sources that he would explore throughout his long career in a multitude of painterly approaches. In conjunction with Richard Pousette-Dart: 1930s, the first in-depth museum consideration of the artist’s 1930s drawings, this publication features approximately 100 illustrations, as well as new scholarship that looks at these works as the presage to many of the compositional strategies Pousette-Dart employed in his later paintings from the 1940s.
