Spanierman Gallery is pleased to announce the opening on February 25, 2010 of Allen Tucker: The Force of Emotion—A Post-Impressionist Rediscovered. An artist of prominence in New York from the mid-1910s through the 1930s, Allen Tucker elicited inordinate respect from his peers for his integrity and broad-mindedness as well as for the creative versatility of his art, which critic Virgil Barker commended in 1928 for its “robust plentitude.” Blending a variety of influences Tucker worked from the standpoint of a post-impressionist, evoking varying emotions and levels of human awareness through a highly expressive and versatile stylistic method.

Including oils, and several watercolors, this exhibition showcases the variety and individuality of Tucker’s art, placing him within the unfolding of modernism in this country. The most comprehensive treatment thus far of Tucker’s career, the twenty-four page catalogue accompanying the exhibition includes an essay by Lisa N. Peters, Ph.D., color illustrations of the thirty-five works in the show, and documentation on Tucker’s exhibitions, references, and collections.
