George McNeil’s Bold Abstracts Featured at Ameringer McHenry Yohe Gallery

NEW YORK—Over the past two months, Ameringer, McEnery, Yohe has been bursting with color—abstract works by George McNeil (1908-1995) hung throughout the gallery. Executed with ambitious strokes and layered with color and texture, McNeil painted the 16 canvases between 1957 and 1969.

A pioneering Abstract Expressionist, he studied under Hans Hoffman, worked for the Works Progress Administration Art Project and was a founding member of the American Abstract Artists group.

The exhibit, which concluded over the weekend, was on view from Nov. 22, 2011 to Jan. 21, 2012.
