Anne Truitt, Knight’s Heritage, 1963, acrylic on wood, National Gallery of Art, Washington, Gift of the Collectors Committee

The studio life of Anne Truitt (1921–2004) is explored in the first major presentation of her work at the Gallery. The exhibition celebrates the museum’s acquisition of several major artworks by Truitt in recent years, including seminal works from the Corcoran Collection as well as several outstanding loans. Bringing together nine sculptures, two paintings, and 12 works on paper representing the different media in which the artist worked, the exhibition traces Truitt’s artistic development from 1961 to 2002. An accompanying brochure will feature excerpts of an interview with Truitt by James Meyer.

The exhibition is curated by James Meyer, curator of art, 1945–1974, National Gallery of Art.
