Walter Darby Bannard: 1959–1962

"Walter Darby Bannard: 1959-1962” is a focused presentation of a series of breakthrough paintings produced by Bannard—a leading figure in the development of Color Field painting—over a period of several years during which he abandoned gestural brushwork and developed a pared-down geometric vocabulary. As was the case for other artists of his generation who aspired to advance abstraction, the years in which these paintings were produced represented for Bannard a moment of reckoning with the lessons and legacy of Abstract Expressionism—and with the desire to inaugurate a new era in American painting. Before his death in 2016, Bannard served as the chair of the Art and Art History Department at the University of Miami from 1989 to 1992.
