With more than 170 sculptures, drawings, and paintings, this is the first comprehensive view of the art of Renaissance man Arthur Carter. Successful in journalism and business, and trained as a classical pianist, Carter is an accomplished artist in the modernist tradition. His abstract sculptures allude to human gestures and interactions. Though firmly grounded, they appear on the verge of flight. Though silent, they suggest song. His lyrical drawings and rigorous paintings, often studies for sculptures, are informed by a deep familiarity with the artists he admires most: Mondrian, Kandinsky, Arp, Bracque, and Picasso. Art historian and journalist Charles A. Riley II explores Carter's work, and Peter Kaplan, editor of theNew York Observer,contributes an illuminating biographical essay.Arthur Carter: Sculptures, Drawings, and Paintingspresents the compelling artistic vision of a fascinating man.
