“Picnic in Yellow” is a painting from Roland Petersen’s famed “Picnic Series”. From 1961, the theme of picnics became central to Petersen and showcased his skill with, color, paint, and composition. Within this series and in this painting, there is a thoughtful and meticulous arrangement of figures around a table and nestled within the landscape. So, too, are there intense diagonals that cut across the painting, emphasized with both planes of color and thick paint.

<br>Petersen’s picnic series, particularly the early ones from 1961 as in “Picnic in Yellow”, show a deep understanding of art history in their relationship to the geometric planes of color of Post-Impressionists like Paul Cezanne. Petersen creates a symphony of color and hues in “Picnic in Yellow”, also suggesting a dialogue with the Fauvists and their outrageous use of color. But, far from cold examinations into configuration and color, Petersen maximizes the ability of oil paint by creating mounds of impasto which creates depth and warmth via texture in the picnic series paintings of 1961. This daring use of impasto would soon cease by the early 1970s as Petersen would switch to acrylic paint due to his allergy to oil paints.

American artist Robert Rauschenberg helped to revolutionize art in the 20th century through his assemblages incorporating found objects and pop culture. For the Hoarfrost series, Rauschenberg used solvent to transfer images from newspapers and magazines to unstretched fabric. Hoarfrost is a kind of lacy film made up of minute, needle-like ice crystals. Rauschenberg evoked the transience of the hoarfrost by printing newspaper and magazine pages on overlapping layers of delicate fabrics. Other pieces in this series are in the collections of The Guggenheim, MoMA, SF MOMA, the National Gallery of Art and Tate.

Contemporary American artist George Condo coined the term “artificial realism” to characterize the figures that appear in his work – often described as a combination of European Old Master painting and American Pop art. Condo has defined the term as the “realistic representation of that which is artificial.” Known for figures that are often grotesque or fractured, Condo creates art that is both Contemporary and rooted in art historical tradition, drawing inspiration from Cubism or, in this case, reaching back to ancient Greece. In an uncommon work of sculpture, Condo imparts his distinctive style to the face of a Mycenaean archetype, the goddess figure.

Carl Andre is an American artist who helped pioneer minimalist sculpture and was the husband of famed and celebrated artist Ana Mendieta. This is a classic text piece from the early 1960s and is typical of his poems which are composed by selecting individual words from source texts, and then ordering them on the page according to simple and self-evident criteria, which, in this case, is by alphabetical listing. Aviator Charles Lindbergh deep fascinated Carl Andre whom he returned to as a source for his poetry. This work with its structured repetition like his famed sculptures reflect the minimalism and post-minimalism emerging in the 1960s and the 1970s including fellow concrete poet Christopher Knowles.
