    October 12, 2003

    Since 1993 when a retrospective of his work opened the new Thorne Gallery, Jules Olitski continues a prolific creation of artwork ranging from his characteristic highly-textured abstract canvases to vivid landscapes, monoprints, colorful life drawings, and metal sculptures. This retrospective exhibits work from the last ten years during which time the artist has fluctuated between representational and abstract art returning to paint directly from nature and the human form to exploring abstract color and movement.
