The goal of this exhibition at the National Academy Museum, in New York City, is to dispel the image of Ralph Albert Blakelock as a “mad genius,” by demonstrating the value of his work and its influence on modern and contemporary artists. Loans from major museums across the country, such as The Corcoran Gallery of Art, and Smithsonian Museum of American Art, both in Washington, DC, and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, in New York City, as well as loans from private collections from throughout the country, present a comprehensive view of the breadth and variety of the artist’s work.
