Art In America

"The Lure of Paris"

at Loretta Howard,

525 W 26th St

Forget An American in Paris. In the 1950s, the streets of the French capital saw more political demonstrators than dancing U.S. expatriates. Yet the city's mix of established culture, an active avant-garde, racial and sexual tolerance, café society and humanist concerns attracted many American artists. Curator and critic Saul Ostrow presents work from 17 painters and sculptors, including Norman Bluhm, Shirley Jaffe, Jules Olitski and Jack Youngerman.
