Peter Takal1905-1995

Arkansas Arts Center
Little Rock, AR

$10,000 toward the exhibition and accompanying catalogue, Peter Takal: Draftsman, co-curated by Brian Young and Townsend Wolfe of the Arkansas Arts Center. Born in Bucharest, Romania, Takal moved to the United States in 1939 after exhibiting in Chicago in a two-person show with Picasso. Principally a draftsman, Takal made complex and delicate drawings that explore both landscape and figuration and reflect his belief that subject matter is a “point of departure for a network of lines.”
