Lennart Anderson: Order, Poise & Delight

Image coming soon.

Scott Noel and David Cohen remember Lennart Anderson (1928 – 2015).

Noel writes: "Although the best paintings are summit achievements in their form, Anderson’s work functions as both a destination and a door. Certainly for painters of my generation the discovery of his pictures came as a completely unexpected recognition of visual eloquence and surprise which seemed impossible faced with the thudding literalness of contemporary practice. The foil dome of Jiffy-Pop and the ruddy, inexhaustible head of Barbara S. were epiphanies enough to reset the course of the painters he influenced." Cohen offers a note on Anderson's late work recognizing "the quiet heroism of Lennart Anderson’s last decade and half of painting in defiance of macular degeneration."
