Champion of Color

James Daugherty

Among the first wave of American modernists, James Daugherty (1887-1974) explored the possibilities of pure color employed in the use, first, of abstract painting, then, in naturalistic compositions that focused on the figure. This exhibition, made possible by a generous gift of the artist’s estate, covers the breadth of Daugherty’s career and showcases early modernism, muralist art, and fauvist realism.
