Seymour Lipton II

Sunday, July 31, 2022 at 11:00am to 4:00pm

Johnson Museum of Art, In the Class of 1953 Gallery, Floor 2L
Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art, 114 Central Ave, Ithaca, NY 14853, USA

The abstract expressionist sculptor Seymour Lipton (1903–1986) represented the United States at the Venice Biennale in 1958. In the following decades he had a number of important solo exhibitions across the country, including a show of recent sculpture at the Johnson Museum in 1973. The exhibition on view here, almost half a century later, highlights his drawing practice with more than thirty conte crayon sketches and prints for realized and unrealized sculptures across his career. The majority of these works on paper were donated to the Johnson over the past fifteen years by the artist’s sons, Michael and Alan Lipton.

This exhibition was curated by Andrea Inselmann, curator of modern and contemporary art at the Johnson Museum.
