Edward Avedisian (1936–2007)

He was artist-in-residence at The University of Kansas in 1969, and taught this year at The School of Visual Arts in New York City. Since 1958 he has had ten one- man shows in New York City ( He has exhibited in one-man shows at the Hansa Gallery, New York. )

One of two Avedisians in the collection. Avedisian has been exhibiting abstract painting in New York since 1959, soon after he moved here from Boston. The striking paint quality, original color sense, and sheer make this one of the outstanding works by an artist of his generation to enter the collection.Avedisian's community of interest with postwar European abstraction stands as a challenge to the narrowness of much recent American taste
