JAMES MCGARRELL



Born 1930 in Indianapolis, Indiana
The Washington University Professor Emeritus James McGarrell taught graduate painting for more than 20 years at Indiana University in Bloomington, where he earned his B.A. Following the completion of his M.A. at the University of California in Los Angeles, curator Peter Selz selected one of his paintings for the controversial "New Images of Man" exhibition held at New York's Museum of Modern Art in 1959. Two decades later, when this highly honored and internationally recognized figure painter was in residence at UNO (November 10-18, 1980), exhibitions such as "Since 1980: New Narrative Paintings" organized by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York discussed his work within the context of postmodern expressionism.
