Laura Freeman reviews Milton Avery: American Colourist for The Times

'He was America’s first great modern colourist with a bracing, racing-silk palette.' 

“There have been others in our generation who have celebrated the world around them,” Rothko said, “but none with that inevitability where the poetry penetrated every pore of the canvas to the very last touch of the brush. For Avery was a great poet-inventor who invented sonorities never seen nor heard before.”
