NEW YORK, NY.- David Findlay Jr. is presenting Charles Cajori: A Swift Continuum. This memorial exhibition explores six decades of Cajori’s works.

Known simply as “Cajori” to friends, colleagues, and students, the legacy he leaves behind is a testament to his nearly seven decade career in the art world. Cajori died on December 1, 2013. He was 92 years old.

As a founding member of the Tanager Gallery, Cajori was a major force among the second generation Abstract Expressionists of the Tenth Street scene. His early works were viewed favorably by noted art writers of the day such as Dore Ashton and Irving Sandler.

As artist and teacher, Cajori championed the classical tenets of painting such as space and form. No examination of his paintings could occur without reflecting on Cézanne and for that matter, no conversation with Cajori would be complete without a nod to his spiritual forbearer. In an art world of constantly changing styles and schools, Cajori remained devoted to the history of his discipline, valiantly examining and re-examining his imagined world. Critic Ben LaRocco wrote about a recent exhibition of Cajori’s work, “Without the sense of individual struggle with history and lineage that Cajori’s art exemplifies, painting has little to offer beyond decorative flair.”

In recent years Cajori was honored with the John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship as well as two Childe Hassam Purchase Prizes from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. His works are in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, and the Hirshhorn Museum.

The exhibition will run through February 28th.
