WASHINGTON, DC.- The Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden presents the first retrospective of the work of Anne Truitt (1921–2004), a pioneering figure in the development of American abstract art. “Anne Truitt: Perception and Reflection,” on view Oct. 8–Jan. 3, 2010, is organized by Hirshhorn associate curator Kristen Hileman. The exhibition features more than 35 two-dimensional works alongside 49 examples of the radically reduced and evocatively painted sculptures that were the hallmark of the artist’s 50-year career. Accompanied by the by the most comprehensive monograph on the artist to date, the exhibition explores Truitt’s under-recognized role in the development of geometric abstraction during the second half of the 20th century.
