New Exhibition at the NGA East Building:
In the Tower: Barnett Newman
Sunday, June 10th - Sunday, February 24th, 2013

"Drawn mainly from the Gallery's rich holdings of Newman's (1905–1970) work, this exhibition presents two crucial periods in the artist's career. Newman's paintings and drawings of the 1940s reveal a shift from biomorphic imagery to simple linear geometry, while The Stations of the Cross: Lema Sabachthani, a cycle of fourteen paintings plus a coda (Be II), dominated Newman's mature career from 1958 to 1966."

Organized by the National Gallery of Art, Washington. Made possible by The Exhibition Circle and The Tower Project of the National Gallery of Art.
