Details:This engaging exhibition features more than sixty works by American modernist William Baziotes (American, 1912–1963). Sketchbooks, drawings, watercolors and gouaches, oil paintings on canvas and board, and archival material representing the full scope of the Pennsylvania-born artist’s career from the early 1930s through the early 1960s. Much of the material is part of a recent gift from the Ethel Baziotes Trust and the Estate of William Baziotes. The artist was born in 1912 in Pittsburgh to Greek immigrant parents. The family moved to Reading the following year to pursue business opportunities, which included a partnership with the well-known Crystal Restaurant. By the time he reached his early twenties, he made the decision to move to New York, where he enrolled in classes at the National Academy of Design in the mid-1930s. His work at this time was deeply influenced by Surrealism and Symbolist poetry, which was introduced to him by Reading poet and fellow Greek, Byron Vazakas (1905 – 1987).
