DRISCOLL BABCOCK GALLERIES presents E. Ambrose Webster: The Primacy of Color, a selection of exceptional works by this major American modernist, whose landscape paintings remain startlingly innovative and evocative to this day. In a dynamic career spanning forty years, Webster (1869-1935) traveled widely in New England, Europe, North Africa, the Azore islands, Jamaica and Bermuda, chasing the sun-drenched color that would inform his own high-keyed palette and superb expression of light. Webster’s masterworks are in public collections such as the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; the Corcoran Gallery of Art and the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, both in Washington, DC; the Barnes Foundation, Philadelphia; and the Speed Art Museum, Louisville.
