Harriette Joffe


Joffe’s career spans the post-World War II Abstract Expressionist movement to the present. Embraced by the first generation of Abstract Expressionist painters on the East End of Long Island, she represents one of the last living links to central figures in the avant-garde of 20th century American art, including such artists as Willem De Kooning, Philip Pavia, Ibram Lassaw, John Little and Balcomb Greene. She has exhibited nationally in galleries and museums, showing alongside artists such as Roy Lichtenstein, Eric Fischel, Linda Benglis, April Gornick, Larry Rivers, and Jackie Windsor. Joffe also worked with the pioneering Down Under Manhattan Bridge Overpass, or DUMBO, artists finding a voice within the then emerging New York City avant-garde in the 1970s. Joffe’s contribution to the history of Abstract Expressionism is featured in the East Hampton Parrish Museum’s “oral histories” series.

Davenport and Shapiro will present a career retrospective of this important artist’s work beginning June 30, 2012. The retrospective will feature a monograph written by distinguished critic Robert Linsley.
