A Spectrum of Paul Jenkins in Prato


This autumn, the Museo di Pittura Murale in San Domenico and Galleria Open Art in Prato showcase American artist Paul Jenkins’ life-long adoration of Italy with the exhibition The Spectrum of Light.

Widely considered an influential figure in twentieth-century art, Jenkins sought expression through the merging and alignment of color. Two years after his death in 2012, Jenkins’ legacy is celebrated with 70 of his works on canvas and paper inspired by Pompeii, Goya, Vermeer, Bellini, Rembrandt, Velazquez, and studies by Moreau. The exhibition ties New York, France and Italy together through artworks rich in color and movement, revealing surprising facets of Jenkins’ early work and his relationships with Rothko, Pollock and Martha Jackson. The Spectrum of Light is held in Prato and runs until November 30.
