2-TIMES · Art
Milton Avery @
Victoria Miro,

Avery spanned, and 
to an extent became 
the link between, two 
significant twentieth 
century national 
movements: American 
Impressionism and 
Abstract Expressionism.


1885. Altmar, 
New York. 

Celebrated for: 
His luminous paintings 
of landscapes, figures 
and still lifes, which 
balance distillation 
of form with free, 
vigorous brushwork 
and lyrical colour

The exhibition: 
is Victoria Miro's 
first exhibition 
by Avery since 
its European 
representation of 
Milton Avery’s 
work, and also 
the first exhibition 
of the artist’s 
work in London 
for ten years – 
featuring paintings 
and works on paper 
from throughout 
his career, ranging 
in date from the 
1930's to the 1960's

Of note: 

Many of Avery's 
works on display 
at Victoria Miro 
have never been 
exhibited outside 
of the United States.
