Artist Ad Reinhardt, Who Studied at TC, Is Focus of NYC Exhibition

The New York Times calls his work "an abstractionism shaped by wounded ideals"
Ad Reinhardt, a key figure in the movement associated with the Betty Parsons Gallery that became known as Abstract Expressionism and  a major influence on conceptual art, minimal art and monochrome painting, is the focus of a major exhibit at New York City's David Zwirner Gallery, located at 537 West 20th Street (212-517-8677davidzwirner.com), through December 18th.

Reinhardt  took courses in painting at TC while he was an undergraduate at Columbia during the 1930s, and in 1943 the College was the  site of his first solo exhibition.  

The three-part Zwirner show, organized by the painter Robert Storr,  dean of the Yale School of Art, covers Reinhardt's graphic designs andphotography, as well as paintings from his last years. 

A story the New York Times wrote on the exhibit describes the work of Reinhardt, who died in 1967 at the age of 54, as "an abstractionism shaped by wounded ideals."
