Hans Burkhardt in Mexico

Jack Rutberg Fine Arts
357 North La Brea
Los Angeles, California

As a participating gallery in the Getty’s region-wide endeavor, Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, Jack Rutberg Fine Arts presents "Hans Burkhardt in Mexico".  The exhibition will feature major works painted in Mexico by the Los Angeles artist, Hans Burkhardt, over a span of more than 10 years beginning in 1950.

Swiss-born (1904), he arrived in the U.S. in 1924, and shared Arshile Gorky's studio for the better half of nine years before moving to L.A. in 1937, where he remained until his death in 1994. In L.A., Burkhardt stood apart as the bridge to the New York school of abstract expressionism. At the time of Burkhardt’s first visit to Mexico, he was perhaps the most widely exhibited artist of L.A.’s avant-garde, already having been the subject of a critically celebrated solo exhibition at the Los Angeles County Museum. In Mexico, Burkhardt distinguished himself in bringing those same abstract expressionist sensibilities and was afforded several museum exhibitions.

"Hans Burkhardt in Mexico" is one of the major participating gallery exhibitions of the Getty's PST: LA/LA.
