OUR STORIES

Collection Item of the Month

Byron Browne Still Life with Teapot, 1959 Collage and casein Gift of Stephen Browne Louisiana Art & Science Museum Collection 2014.007.002 In the 1940s, Byron Browne was in contact with many of the artists who came to be associated with the Abstract Expressionism movement. Influenced by Arshille Gorky and Willem de Kooning, Browne became adept at painting still life in the manner of Synthetic Cubism, a style that incorporates collage elements onto a two-dimensional surface. While he later adopted the gestural qualities of Abstract Expressionism, Browne believed that “pure” abstraction was impossible. Instead he promoted abstraction as an extension of the physical world.
