NANCY SPIRTAS KRANZBERG GALLERY
Edward Boccia:
Early Work

Through May 18, 2013
This exhibition features 40 drawings and paintings by Edward Boccia made between 1941 and 1969. Known for his large, expressionist diptychs, triptychs and polyptychs, Boccia infused his canvases with figures from Greek and Italian mythology and Christian symbolism. His paintings exhibit an affinity to the work of Max Beckmann, and his early drawings to those of Vincent Van Gogh. Boccia was born in 1921 in Newark, New Jersey and received his art training at Pratt Institute, the Art Students League of New York and Columbia University. He served in the U.S. Armed Forces during World War II. During the war, Boccia used art supplies sent from home and painted from cafés and foxholes, sometimes during intense fighting.
The exhibition is made possible in part by Christine Casten and Mark Moloney.

This performance will preview their Carnegie Hall program, consisting of brand-new works written specifically for Alarm Will Sound by Steve Reich, Donnacha Dennehy and John Orfe, including Reich's Radio Review.
