Over 20 paintings and works on paper directly from the Jon Schueler estate will be exhibited in our London gallery this June. Despite being represented in over 50 major public collections, this will be Schueler's first exhibition in London in 40 years.
Jon Schueler was an Abstract Expressionist who rose to prominence in 1950s New York. He was taught by Clyfford Still and he exhibited alongside Mark Rothko and the other notable artists of the day. After visiting Western Scotland for the first time in 1957, he took the scale, gesture and gravity of Abstract Expressionism and married it to the wild skyscapes above the Sound of Sleat, renowned for its tempestuous weather. In 1975 he had a major solo show at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York and the 3 person show (with Rothko and Milton Avery) at Cleveland Museum of Art.
