Press Release

Michael Rosenfeld Gallery is proud to present a solo exhibition for the work of William H. Johnson (1901-1970), offering a rare opportunity—outside of museum walls—to view a concentrated selection of paintings, watercolors and pochoirs, dating from c.1928-c.1941. Known for thickly surfaced modernist landscapes of scenes visited in Scandinavia, France and North Africa and later, stylized, flat narratives often described as “modern primitivism”, Johnson aimed in all of his work “to express in a natural way what I feel is in me both rhythmically and spiritually, all that which in time has been saved up in my family of primitiveness and tradition and which is now concentrated in me.”
