Los Angeles Modern Auctions (LAMA)

The upcoming February 23, 2014 Modern Art & Design Auction features paintings by each member of the 1959 “Four Abstract Classicists” exhibition at the Los Angeles County Museum at Exposition Park (now LACMA). Two of the youngest Abstract Classicists at the time of the first show, Karl Benjamin and Frederick Hammersley arrived at the threshold of a new art movement through contrasting pathways, but their resulting works have come to define the California Hard Edge Movement.
