An Abstract Expressionist Returns to New York This October

John Ferren was a fascinating, if little-known, figure in 20th century American art. The abstract expressionist painter, who died in Southampton in 1970, is considered a founder of the New York School and was part of the Parisian avant-garde. His divisive work won over Gertrude Stein, but caused Elaine de Kooning to accuse him of “betraying” his group of New York painters.

This October, fans can get a chance to appreciate his work at a new solo exhibition at Findlay Galleries — the artist’s first in over a decade. John Ferren, From Paris to Springs includes works across the painters career, but mostly focuses on the 1950s and ’60s, including his noted “Vase” paintings.
