Arshile Gorky: Sketchbook Drawings and Patrick Graham: Fact of the Matter Exhibitions at Jack Rutberg Fine Arts

Jack Rutberg Fine Arts presents two timely and concurrent exhibitions in Los Angeles.

Monumental paintings and drawings by Patrick Graham, widely regarded as Ireland’s most important contemporary artist, are featured in a major exhibition of Graham’s most recent works as well as a number of the artist’s most iconic, large-scale paintings of the last 25 years.

Also shown is a rare exhibition of drawings by Arshile Gorky (1904-1948), the Armenian-born artist; one of the 20th century’s most important painters and seminal forces of American modern and contemporary art. Both exhibitions opened May 22, with Patrick Graham in attendance, and run through July 31.

Founded in 1979, Jack Rutberg Fine Arts has presented major exhibitions of important Modern and Contemporary European and American artists. Since its inaugural exhibition featuring the works of Arshile Gorky and Hans Burkhardt, the gallery has continued to present museum-quality exhibitions placing contemporary paintings, sculpture, prints and drawings in historical context.

Established at its current La Brea Avenue location in 1981, Jack Rutberg Fine Arts has featured exhibitions by gallery artists Hans Burkhardt, Oskar Fischinger, Patrick Graham and Ruth Weisberg. In addition, the gallery has presented a wide range of solo exhibitions of major international artists including Kathe Kollwitz, Antoni Tapies, Arshile Gorky, Georges Rouault, Hundertwasser, George Herms, Max Weber, Alexander Calder and other significant 20th century artists.

Noteworthy thematic exhibitions presented by the gallery have included major surveys of German Expressionism, California Modern Art, Los Angeles Contemporary Art, as well as numerous group exhibitions.

The gallery is particularly noteworthy for its emphasis on education through its exhibitions, numerous lectures and panel discussions. Through those endeavors, Jack Rutberg Fine Arts is an important resource for established and beginning collectors, art historians, and museums internationally.
