Abstract Expressionist painter Richard Pousette-Dart (1916-92) pursued photography as a serious visual enterprise throughout his long and distinguished career, creating nature studies and portraits, including those of New York School colleagues Mark Rothko, Betty Parsons, John Graham, Barnett Newman and Theodoros Stamos. In 1948 Pousette-Dart's photographs were presented in a one-man show at the Betty Parsons Gallery and in 1953 honored by Photography Magazine. The Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute exhibition Absence/Presence is the first museum survey of Pousette-Dart's photographic work. The exhibition draws together approximately 45 vintage photographs printed by the artist between the 1930s and 1980s, including unique examples with hand-applied pigments.
