LINCOLN, MA.- Harold “Red” Tovish (1921-2008) was one of the most important artists working in Boston during the second half of the twentieth century. The DeCordova Museum announces an exhibition of Harold Tovish’s sculptures, lithographic prints, drawings, and a multi-media installation — all from DeCordova’s Permanent Collection— that honors the artist’s vision and career. Despite coming of age in the 1950s when New York School abstraction became the dominant style in the international art world, Tovish remained committed to the human form as the primary vehicle for exploring metaphysical existence.  On view 24 January through 17 May, 2009.
