Dec 22, 1977–Feb 12, 1978
The first comprehensive museum exhibition of works by American artist Gregory Gillespie (1936-2000) included about 75 paintings and works in mixed media created over the preceding 15 years. His early works, made while he studied in Italy, focus on the human figure in microscopically scaled landscapes, interiors, or city streets and often have photo-collage and relief surfaces. Living in the US starting in 1970, Gillespie produced meticulously rendered still-lifes, wall studies, and self-portraits. Organized by the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden.
