A SMALL SELECTION FROM the exhibition:
Hughie Lee-Smith drew the many different faces of urban life in Cleveland he encountered during the Great Depression. Here an unflinching social-realism is conveyed with superb draughtmanship.
Chicago/detroit/new york, 1960-70
Lee-Smith expanded his range with great experimentation with monotype in the 1960s - a side of the artist's work that is seldom seen. These unique and direct images convey a great immediacy.
New Jersey, 1990
Late in his career, Lee-Smith developed a new and bold body of work in watercolor which refer back to his early work in theater, and forward to contemporary ideas of changing cultural identity.
