EXTRASENSORY: The works of Jake Berthot (1939 – 2014)

I Dreamt I Saw Saint Cubism (Poetry and Visual Prose), 2011, Ink Wash and Gesso on Paper, 23 x 35 inches.

The New York Studio School is pleased to present Extrasensory, an exhibition of 40 works on paper by the late artist Jake Berthot. The works in this show take as their subject matter themes of the following:  Artist and Model; Angels and Putti; and Poetry and Visual Prose. The relationship between artist and model is an age-old theme that Berthot explores with the use of ink, gesso, graphite, and paper.  Each work honors masters of years past, such as Raphael and Puvis de Chevannes. Berthot blended personal poetry into visual exposition in works that range from 18 x 9 inches to 23 x 35 inches in size.

Jake Berthot was born in Niagara Falls, New York in 1939. He attended the New School for Social Research and Pratt Institute in the early 1960s.  He exhibited regularly with O.K. Harris and the McKee Gallery. The estate is currently represented by Betty Cuningham Gallery. Berthot received a number of awards and grants including a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1981, a National Endowment for the Arts Grant in 1983, and an Academy Institute Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters in 1992. Berthot’s work can be seen in major museum collections including the Museum of Modern Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, all in New York City. Nationally, his work can be found in the collections of the National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC, the Museum of Art, University of California, Berkeley, CA, among numerous others.

This exhibition is made possible by Betty Cuningham Gallery, New York.
