William N. Copley: The Coffin They Carry You Off In

TAGS: Art Exhibit Museum
Tue 12/4/2018 - Sun 5/12/2019

“William N. Copley: The Coffin They Carry You Off In” presents a group of paintings from 1956 to 1958 highlighting the artist’s critical yet humorous perspective on both European and American culture. “William N. Copley: The Coffin They Carry You Off In” gathers works from the artist’s first exhibition, “Paintings by William Copley” (Alexander Iolas Gallery, New York, 1958), as well as examples of his earliest work. Revelatory paintings such as Birdshot (1958) from ICA Miami’s permanent collection and the eponymous The Coffin They Carry You Off In (1957) introduce Copley’s distinct style: cutout and silhouetted paintings in bold colors that demonstrate his interests in history, art history, and the expatriate experience of France. Motifs include the guillotine, Édouard Manet’s 1863 painting Le Déjeuner sur l’herbe (The Luncheon on the Grass), and the Dachshund, in styles that meld French Surrealism and American Pop art.
