"Transmits the joy of that quiet, pastoral and lyrical aspect of Mexico as depicted through the eyes of Milton Avery." - Moussa Domit, Director. "In his Mexican travels, Avery saw, with fresh vision, a land and its people and places at a time when he was at the peak of his talent and achievement. He had perfected his art as an eloquently powerful instrument for transforming people in their places into images compelling in their simplicity, endlessly fascinating in their subtlety. In the summer of 1946, Mexico gave Milton Avery the most precious gift an artist can receive - a whole world of color and form. In creating the paintings in this exhibition, Milton Avery gave Mexico a gift in return - the great gift of his art." - From Introduction. Average wear. Unmarked.
