Charles Garabedian Retrospective

Christopher Knight reviews Charles Garabedian: A Retrospective at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art on view through April 17, 2011.  The exhibition features Garbedian's "Prehistoric Figures" paintings which have not been exhibited since 1984.  Knight writes: "[Garbedian's] works draw on myriad precedents. Some are artistic -- Matisse's brash color, Fra Angelico's Renaissance modesty, Picasso's stylized multiple viewpoints, Diebenkorn's fluid abstraction, the Mexican muralists' epic monumentality and more."
