RE-Discovering David Budd: The Forgotten Abstract Expressionist

David Budd studied at the Ringling School of Art and Design in the late 1940’s. He soon moved to New York City where he spent his nights at the Cedar Tavern, drinking and arguing with Jackson Pollock, Franz Kline and William de Kooning, and his days becoming an abstract expressionist painter. A very successful one. 

Budd had his first solo exhibition at the Betty Parsons Gallery in 1958. In the 1960’s he moved to Paris, where he exhibited at Galerie Stadler, and collaborated with the Beat-Generation writer William S. Burroughs. 

In the 1970’s, Budd moved back to New York and had solo exhibitions at the Tibor De Nagy, Max Hutchinson and the Susan Caldwell galleries. He painted in East Hampton during the summers. His work is in the collections of the Met, MoMA, Whitney, Guggenheim, Corcoran and other major museums. 

Daily Showing: April 5-13  |  12-6pm  |  FREE ADMISSION
