Milton Avery

Nationality: American

Born: 7th March 1885

Died: 3rd January 1965

Bio: An American modernist painter born in NY. He studied for a period at the Connecticut League of Art.

Avery was a factory work who was living in obscurity when Roy Neuberger saw his work and purchased over 100 hundred of Avery's paintings.. Nueberger either donated or lent them to Museum's all over the world. With such high profile exposure Milton became a highly respected and successful artist.

Avery's landscapes and seascapes of the early 1920s use the heavy impasto, light palette, and atmospheric mistiness.

Avery spent some 50 years of his life painting, sometimes creating as many as 5 or 6 paintings in a single day. He was a prolific artist and many of his paintings are either in unknown locations or undocumented.

Avery was associated with Mark Rothko, Adolph Gottleib and Barnet Newman and was also a close friend of Marsden Hartley.

Avery is now acclaimed as one of the 20th Century's most influential artists.
