Augustus Vincent Tack @ the Phillips

Tyler Green blogs about a new installation of Augustus Vincent Tack's abstract paintings commissioned by collector Duncan Phillips on display at The Phillips Collection in Washington D.C. through December 31, 2011.

Green writes that "It could be argued that Tack’s abstractions also seem to anticipate Clyfford Still… they show a reluctant modernist pushing himself away from straightforward representation."  He also notes that "The 12 panels on view now are actually studies for murals that were never realized. Painted in 1929 and 1930, Tack considered them the apex of his career."
