Richard Pousette-Dart (1916-1992), the youngest of the Abstract Expressionists, had his first solo exhibition at the Artist’s Gallery, New York in 1941 and subsequently showed with legendary dealers Marian Willard, Peggy Guggenheim and Betty Parsons. Introspective and less gregarious than many of The New York School, Pousette-Dart was highly concerned with the spiritual and the role of the unconscious.
Pousette-Dartís pictorial vocabulary went through numerous changes, progressing from slightly biomorphic forms to a pointillist style.
