D ALONG HIS OWN LINES: A RETROSPECTIVE OF NEW YORK REALIST EUGENE SPEICHER

February 5–July 13, 2014 Valerie Ann Leeds, Curator The Dorsky Museum Opening reception: Saturday, February 8, 5–7 pm

New York painter Eugene Speicher (1883-1962) was one of the foremost American realists of his generation, closely associated with George Bellows, Robert Henri, Leon Kroll, and Rockwell Kent. Born in Buffalo, NY, Speicher first garnered national recognition in the 1910s for his incisive portraits of actors, artists, and friends, which were collected by many prominent American museums. Splitting his professional time between New York City and Woodstock, NY, Speicher expanded his repertoire to include still life, nudes, and landscape. Along His Own Lines will be the first Speicher museum survey since 1963. The exhibition and accompanying catalogue will explore Speicher’s role in the Woodstock art colony and the New York art world and reevaluate his place in the canon of early 20th-century American art.
