The late Anne Truitt ’43 (1921-2004) is the subject of a major exhibition at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, the Smithsonian Institution’s museum of modern and contemporary art. The exhibition, titled “Anne Truitt: Perception and Reflection,” opened in October and will run through Jan. 3. Wall Street Journal art critic Lance Esplund recently reviewed the show, praising Truitt’s sculptures as “unassuming yet dead-on” and noting, “Their power lies in their economy; and in their full embrace of the beauty and metaphoric richness of color—maximal results achieved through minimal means, not Minimalism.”
