Charles Biederman Trust
Inver Grove Heights, MN
$10,000 for the photography associated with a monograph on the painter, written by art historian/curator Susan C. Larsen. Originally from Cleveland, Biederman traveled abroad as a young man and exhibited his early painting in Chicago, New York and Paris, before settling in Red Wing, MN. It was in the mid 1930s that Biederman began to produce brightly colored abstract reliefs made of wood, metal and plexiglas that explored pure geometric abstraction through three dimensional planes.
