One of the founding fathers of 1960s Minimal Art, Flavin is best known for sculptural installations of fluorescent lights. But drawing was always a key aspect of his practice, not only as a way to map out his projects, but also as a sideline in which he rendered such un-Minimalistic subject matter as sailboats (though admittedly with an extremely reductive economy of line). This show brings together his drawings, along with items from his personal collection of works on paper by artists of the 19th-century Hudson River School, with whom he felt a deep affinity.
