Red Grooms: Larger than Life
August 30, 2013–March 9, 2014

This installation of works by American artist Red Grooms features oversized paintings and works on paper from the bequest of Charles B. Benenson, B.A. 1933, including Picasso Goes to Heaven (1973), Studio at the Rue des Grands-Augustins (1990–96), and the 27-foot-long Cedar Bar (1986). Twenty preparatory cartoons for this last work, also from the Yale University Art Gallery’s collection, complete the display. Spanning three decades of the artist’s career, these works represent a lesser-known aspect of Grooms’s oeuvre: witty, larger-than-life homages to giants of 20th-century art, from Pablo Picasso to Jackson Pollock.
