Albany : The Old Jail Art Center- Texas Moderns: George Grammer

September 20, 2014 - 10:00am to 5:00pm
George Grammer, Off Shore, 1953, oil on canvas.

Often associated with the Fort Worth Circle of artists of the 1940s and 50s, George Grammer like all the artists of the group, developed and maintained an individual and distinctive style. The fusion of Cubist, American and Italian Futurist, and sometimes Surrealist devises and approaches to image making are evident in his paintings. He often abstracts familiar images including disorienting views of skyscrapers, nocturnal interpretations of oil derricks, and industrial scenes. These iconic twentieth-century subjects represent the newfound wealth, power and modernity of mid-century Texas.
