Oregon Jewish Museum and Center for Holocaust Education, Portland, OR - Jun 7 – Sep 23
OJMCHE presents the first Northwest overview of work by painter R.B. Kitaj (1932-2007). Kitaj, from Ohio, was educated in England and California. He was influenced by Matisse and Pop Art, and remained friends with David Hockney. Kitaj was known for his bright figurative paintings, which belied the sordid reality he experienced in his own life.
