Earl Cavis Kerkam

Earl Cavis Kerkam, (1891– 1965) according to Willem de Kooning, Philip Guston, Mark Rothko, George Spaventa and Esteban Vicente “was one of the finest painters to come out of America.” Gerald Norland wrote at the Earl Kerkam Memorial Exhibition in 1966:
    ”A painter of enormous poetic awareness, self-directed, almost totally without direct influence, he stands as an original American artist in the best sense.”
Earl Kerkam died on January 12, 1965 in New York City.
