NEW YORK, NY.- Loretta Howard Gallery in collaboration with Anders Wahlstedt Fine Art announce an exhibition of Cleve Gray: Paintings on Paper from the Foundation. The works are on view at 521 West 26th Street in Chelsea and online from November 19th 2020 to January 16th 2021. They span from the Ceres Series in the 1960s to the Roman Walls of the 1970s and Calligraphic Abstractions of the 1980s. In this exhibition Cleve Gray’s dramatic body of works on paper trace over thirty years of production. These works touch upon the rigors of French modernism, the ethos of Abstract Expressionism and the meditative restraint of Chinese and Japanese scroll painting.

At Princeton, he wrote his senior honor thesis on Yuan dynasty Chinese painting. Gray Served in World War II and remained in Paris after the war where he studied painting with Jacques Villon. After returning to New York he met and married Franccine du Plessix in 1952. The couple were at the center of intellectual life throughout their lives. In the 1960s Gray contributed regularly to Art in America and authored essays on Barnett Newman and David Smith whom he had also formed close friendships with. Francine, a renowned novelist and critic in her own right, was a staff reporter for The New Yorker.
