Eugene Speicher
New York painter Eugene Speicher (1883-1962) was one of the foremost American realists of his generation, closely associated with George Bellows, Robert Henri, Leon Kroll, and Rockwell Kent. Born in Buffalo, NY, Speicher first garnered national recognition in the 1910s for his incisive portraits of actors, artists, and friends, which were collected by many prominent American museums. Splitting his professional time between New York City and Woodstock, NY, Speicher expanded his repertoire to include still life, nudes, and landscape.Along His Own Lines is the first Speicher museum survey since 1963. The exhibition and accompanying catalogue will explore Speicher’s role in the Woodstock art colony and the New York art world, and reevaluate his place in the canon of early twentieth-century American art.This exhibition is organized by the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art, SUNY New Paltz.
