Picturing New York

The Art of Yvonne Jacquette and Rudy Burckhardt

The New York paintings and pastels of Yvonne Jacquette, one of America’s most distinguished contemporary painters, and the New York photographs of her late husband Rudy Burckhardt, whose unconventional art has spawned a large and devoted following, are the subjects of this intriguing look at a slice of the New York art world from the 1930s to the present. Picturing New York: The Art of Yvonne Jacquette and Rudy Burckhardt explores this remarkable pair of artists whose work celebrates New York’s streets and skyline, capturing both the intimacy and the expansiveness of the city.
