Elizabeth Osborne: The Sixties

October 8, 2016 - January 8, 2017

Philadelphia-based artist Elizabeth Osborne (born 1936) is best known for her glowing landscapes and seascapes. She is also known for her interior and figurative paintings which were influenced by Richard Diebenkorn and Color Field painters such as Helen Frankenthaler. Following her graduation from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Osborne spent a year in the mid-1960s studying in Paris through the Fulbright Program. This period was of great importance, resulting in the artist’s first mature paintings. Elizabeth Osborne: The Sixties traces the influence of Osborne’s contemporaries, such as Jasper Johns and Robert Rauschenberg, and presents the first survey of the artist’s haunting, black paintings from this decade.
