George McNeil Charitable Trust
Brooklyn, NY

$15,000 to document and inventory paintings and prints, as well as to organize his writings on art. Born in Brooklyn, McNeil trained as a painter at the Pratt Institute and the Art Students League as well as with Hans Hofmann. McNeil’s work ranges from classic, geometric Cubism to later figural abstraction and printmaking-all distinguished by an expressive and confident use of color and gesture.
