The French-American painter Georges Malkine (1898-1970), who lived in Woodstock, NY for a number of decades, was the only visual artist named as a founding member in André Breton’s 1924 Manifesto of Surrealism. Malkine’s work hung at all the major Surrealist exhibitions from 1925-1928 alongside that of Max Ernst, Joan Miro, Giorgio De Chirico, and Man Ray. His first solo exhibition in 1927 at the Galérie surréaliste in Paris was an artistic coup; but instead of reaping the benefits of fame, Malkine skipped town, arriving eventually on American shores.
Proposed for 2013, the Woodstock Artists Association and Museum’s exhibition Georges Malkine: Perfect Surrealist Behavior will be the first major U.S. retrospective of the artist, featuring oils and gouaches by Malkine, as well as drawings, photographs, letters, and writings.
