Milton AVERY belongs to that infrequent and proficient corporation of artists whose imaginative and prescient of humanity and artwork is big adequate to remodel the standard occasions of existence right into a common visible poetry. Avery was once now not an innovator for him it was once of better value that the attention and hand be capable to catch the essence of a scene via work and prints. He selected to carry, in time and house, the quick retinal photo of mountains and sea, and of figures at paintings or relaxation inside such landscapes. His spouse, his daughter and his buddies made up the repertory of pictures to which he gave a sophisticated geniality and informal humor. A perceptive eye and integrity of imaginative and prescient served him good. His expert hand set down - in numerous work, drawings, watercolors, a few 2 hundred monotypes and forty eight prints — a homosexual, occasionally nostalgic chronicle of his studies.
