MAJOR MODERNIST ARTIST,
EXHIBITS AT LEONARD TOURNÉ GALLERY
New York, NY --- Gerson Leiber, a 93-year-old modernist painter, who has been producing acclaimed works of art since 1946, is being celebrated with a one-man show of colorful abstract paintings at the Leonard Tourné Gallery.
Gerson Leiber’s reputation ranks high in artistic circles, and it is no surprise that his work has been praised by such eminent art critics, curators, and artists as Will Barnet, Hilton Kramer, Ruth Appelhof, Gail Levin, Avis Berman, Phyllis Braff, and Bernice Steinbaum, among various others.
Will Barnet wrote: “Gerson Leiber is a painter with full control over his vocabulary of means.” And Ruth Appelhof, the director of Guild Hall in East Hampton, wrote: “Gerson Leiber [is] one of a pantheon of outstanding 20th Century artists…has explored styles, even movements, with dexterity of a gifted, extremely self-confident person always expressing his own aesthetic at the core of his work.”
In addition to being honored with numerous one-man exhibitions, Gerson Leiber has received more than a dozen awards and honors for his work which is in such prestigious collections as The Museum of Modern Art, The Whitney Museum, The Boston Museum of Fine Art, The Philadelphia Museum of Fine Art, Seattle Museum of Art, and The Yale University Art Gallery as well as many other museums.
The exhibition is open to the public throughout May. The Leonard Tourné Gallery is located at 46 East 65 Street in Manhattan. For further information, please contact [email protected]
