Yikes: The Art of Elizabeth Murray
Presented by Peter Luce
Elizabeth Murray (1940 - 2007) was a modernist painter who combined abstract and figurative elements in an art that was bold, colorful and exuberant. Her 40 year career was capped by a retrospective at MOMA in 2006, an honor enjoyed by very few women artists. Murray was the recipient of a MacArthur Foundation “genius grant” and her work is in the collections of major museums including the Museum of Modern Art, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Whitney Museum of American Art and the National Gallery in Washington. The course will trace the career of this remarkable artist.

Peter is an amateur artist with a bias toward abstraction.
