Virginia Jaramillo: The Curvilinear Paintings, 1969–1974

Fall 2020
Main Building

With their bright, flat fields of color and sharp, thin, undulating lines, Virginia Jaramillo’s paintings from the early 1970s exemplify American “hard edge abstraction.” This focused exhibition—the artist’s first solo museum show—presents approximately eight of her canvases from this time. Virginia Jaramillo: The Curvilinear Paintings, 1969–1974 marks the fiftieth anniversary of The De Luxe Show, a pioneering and racially integrated exhibition that was organized by the de Menil Foundation in 1971. Jaramillo was the only female artist whose work was included.

Organized by Michelle White, Senior Curator, The Menil Collection.
