This exhibition will explore the dialogue between figuration and abstraction in the post-war decades, provide an in depth look at the persistence of figuration in the wake of Abstract Expressionism, and trace its enduring legacy up to our own time. Comprised largely of works on paper, the show will encompass roughly 100 depictions of the human form—across media (prints, drawings, paintings, and sculpture) and in a dazzling variety of styles. The selection is drawn primarily from the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, with a small number of important loans and promised gifts.
