Just In: Edward Dugmore Abstractions

March 16, 2018

Los Angeles Modern Auctions (LAMA)

Edward Dugmore moved to New York in 1952 and quickly became associated with a group of avant-garde artists, including Willem de Kooning, Barnett Newman, Franz Kline, Jackson Pollock, and Mark Rothko. It was during this period that Dugmore began heavily experimenting with the ways in which texture could be given to flat surfaces using readily-available pigments, including watercolor, ink, acrylic, and oil paint. The result was a body of large-scale works possessing a distinct tactility for which a Dugmore work is now so readily known. In the June 10, 2018 Modern Art & Design Auction, Los Angeles Modern Auctions (LAMA) is pleased to have the opportunity to include Dugmore’s ‘#50’ and ‘Blue-Black’ (1958), two important oil on canvas works created by the artist during this pivotal moment in his career on the East Coast.
