The Uncharted Course from Realism to Abstraction
Organized by Juniata College in Huntingdon, Pa., and Christiane H. Citron, this retrospective exhibition features work by award-winning painter and printmaker Minna Citron (1896–1991). Citron’s New York-based career was long and distinguished, with numerous exhibitions worldwide and her works represented in the permanent collections of major museums in the United States and abroad. Citron was an artist at the forefront of major artistic movements of the 20th century, including the Fourteenth Street School and the first generation of New York Abstract Expressionists, and was directly connected to the central figures of those movements. She was a well-known figure in the New York art world. Designed to shed light upon a historically important 20th-century American artist who is recently being rediscovered, the exhibition showcases about 50 paintings, prints, drawings and mixed-media constructions created during the course of her more-than-60-year career.
