The Georgia Museum of Art at the University of Georgia will present “To Make a World: George Ault and 1940s America” from Feb. 18 to April 16. The traveling exhibition is being organized by the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
Late November in the Catskills (1940) from the WAAM Permanent Collection is part of the exhibition To Make a World: George Ault and 1940s America.
The WAAM Permanent Collection includes several paintings by Ault in its collection, including Jane Street Corner, Hudson (a sister painting to an oil in the Whitney Museum of American Art), a tonalist landscape from 1911 painted in France where the young artist studied, and a number of other oils and drawings which provide an excellent overview of the artist’s career. The WAAM also published a catalogue and organized an exhibition in 2001 entitled George Ault, The Woodstock Years, which was curated by Eila Kokkinen.
This is the first major exhibition of Ault’s work in more than 20 years and includes 47 paintings and drawings by the artist and his contemporaries. It centers on four paintings Ault made between 1943 and 1948 that depict the crossroads of Russell’s Corners in Woodstock, N.Y.”
