DC Moore Gallery | 535 West 22nd Street

The art of Walt Kuhn (1877-1949) is the subject of a major exhibition at DC Moore Gallery. Timed to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the landmark 1913 Armory Show, of which Kuhn was a principal organizer, this commemorative exhibition is long overdue. During his lifetime, Kuhn received great acclaim for the bold simplicity and psychological intensity of his modernist paintings of showgirls and circus performers. Since then, he has been given much less attention. This show is intended to bring his work back into the spotlight.
