Fairfield Porter (1907-1975) was an artist and critic whose works were grounded in the real world during years when abstraction largely dominated the American art. Described as a reticent realist, he painted the world immediately surrounding him: his family, his friends his studio, and his homes in Spruce Head Island, Maine and Southampton, New York. This exhibit of thirty-nine works, many of them unfinished, reflects on his working method and the creative process.
