Milton Avery

1885 - 1965

Milton Avery began his career as a relatively traditional painter in the 1920s, however, early on, his style quickly ran counter to the social realism of the time. He combined elements of American impressionism with the simplified shapes similar to those of Matisse to forge a unique style that became increasingly abstract later in his career. His fundamental approach to painting made use of hues to unite color, form, and space. Milton once said: “Keep painting - day in - day out. Be absorbed by it.” This expresses the essence of Milton’s life as a painter — his friendly impudence, his dedication, his centeredness on simple domestic themes and natural landscapes.
