George L. K. Morris and Suzy Frelinghuysen, prolific abstract artists since the late 1930s, were leaders of the national and international art scene. Collectors and intellectuals, they created a Berkshire home that reflected their aesthetic worlds.
Upon her death in 1988, Suzy Frelinghuysen left instructions that the House & Studio and art collection be used for an educational purpose the House & Studio opened for visitation in 1998.
This summer, the Frelinghuysen Morris House & Studio presents an exhibition entitled “American Abstract Artists: A Collection: Unseen Works.”
Tomorrow at 3pm, Carol Troyen, Curator Emerita of American Paintings at The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston will present a lecture entitled “Protests and Patronage: Morris, Frelinghuysen, and the Promotion of Abstract Arts in the 1930s.”
We are joined by Frelinghuysen Morris House & Studio Director Kinney Frelinghuysen.
