Gallery C in Raleigh, NC, Features Works by Robert Broderson
Gallery C in Raleigh, NC, is presenting the exhibit, Robert Broderson: Faces, featuring a collection of original paintings by the well known artist Robert Broderson (1920-1992), on view through July 27, 2010.
Broderson was an important figure in American painting who had close ties to North Carolina. He earned his undergraduate painting degree at Duke University on a GI Bill. Later he taught at Duke from 1952 to 1964 and at NC State from 1967 to 1968. His work is in the permanent collections of the Guggenheim, the Whitney, MOMA, North Carolina Museum of Art, and the National Gallery in Washington.
Gallery C owner, Charlene Newsom, has curated a select group of twenty original paintings on canvas and paper. The theme of the collection is faces. "Robert Broderson was an artist who was unconcerned with external beauty. His portraits were very psychological it was about interior tensions and passions. He was so very successful at this. In the 1960s, when the art world was immersed in Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art, Broderson was one of the few celebrated Figurative artists in America."
