Corcoran Gallery "American Evolution" Exhibit

Artist Jay Rolfe recently attended the exhibit at the Corcoran Gallery in Washington DC titled The American Evolution: A History Through Art. The exhibit runs through July 27, 2008. It's a diverse group of paintings, spanning several centuries and many, many styles.

Perhaps the diversity of the exhibit is best symbolized by the paintings on a wall a short distance in front of one's face as one enters the first gallery. You are bound to recognize both paintings, Gilbert Stuart's "George Washington" from 1796-1803 and Andy Warhol's "Mao" from 1973. By the way, the Gilbert Stuart "George Washington" is one of two in the exhibit, the 1803 version being one of the "plurality" of the Athenaeum portrait that he painted.

This is the latest step of artist Jay Rolfe on his Journey From Starving Artist To 21st Century Picasso. You may view some of Jay Rolfe's signature style, his innovative Pop Art 3-D paintings, on his website at http://www.3dssc.com/.
