Re-visiting Manierre Dawson

Pin It

Yesterday William Poundstone reported that the Los Angeles County Museum of Art has acquired this painting, Manierre Dawson’s Coordinate Escape (1910). As Poundstone notes over at LA County Museum on Fire, it’s one of the earliest Western abstract paintings.

I’ve written about Dawson a bit over the years, so while I’m traveling today, check out my take on why I think Manierre Dawson should have been included in MoMA’s recent “Inventing Abstraction” exhibition.
