November 5, 2005 – March 4, 2006
The work of Nils Gren, though representational, is as much about shape, texture, color, and shading as it is about the countryside, the towns, or the people and objects that inhabit his paintings. A 1940 exhibition of Gren’s paintings (the year Gren died) at the San Francisco Museum of Art prompted these comments from San Francisco Chronicle critic Alfred Frankenstein: “Mr. Gren’s best pictures are fantastic, moody, imaginative landscapes in oil, with the looping rhythms characteristic of his approach.” This exhibition will include oil paintings, watercolors and graphite drawings.
A color brochure of the exhibition is available upon request.
