  • Artist Milton Avery’s landscapes, still life paintings and figure compositions derive their expressive power from their abstracted, flat shapes and luminous yet subtly toned contours and though his subjects seem unremarkable, the manner in which he treats them is exceptional for through his strong, simple designs, his intimate scenes take on monumental presence with a freshness and uncomplicated nature.

  • Most of his subjects were either marine scenes or figure studies as depicted in the scene above showing two people engrossed in a game of checkers; Milton’s composition in each checkers painting called the viewer’s attention to the checkerboard and game of checkers in progress.

  • Although never associated with a particular movement, Avery was a key modernist who influenced succeeding generations of artists.
