Milton Avery HB

A sociable member of the New York art scene, Milton Avery was an influential figure for a generation of American artists. In Mark Rothko's words, Avery celebrated the world around him with a poetry that ‘penetrated every pore of the canvas to the very last touch of the brush’. 

This new and authoritative study of the painter, features an introduction by the curator of the exhibition, Edith Devaney, along with texts examining his early years and influences. A conversation with the artist’s daughter March Avery Cavanaugh and an illustrated chronology complete the book.

Product story

Born in 1885 to a working-class family in Connecticut, Milton Avery left school at 16 to work in a factory. After attending evening school for fifteen years, he moved to New York in the 1920s to pursue a career as a painter. Although he never identified with a particular movement, Avery was a sociable member of the New York art scene. He became a figure of considerable influence for a younger generation of American artists, including Mark Rothko, Adolph Gottlieb and Barnett Newman.
