Biography   Wallace Putnam


Born in West Newton, MA, Putnam studied at various art schools, including the Boston Museum School. He met Milton Avery while working at Travelers Insurance Company in Hartford, CT. By 1925 both men had moved to New York City to pursue their artistic careers. Putnam's work was included in two important group exhibitions, the "Societe Anonyme International Exhibition" at the Brooklyn Museum in 1926 and "Fantastic Art, Dada, Surrealism" mounted at the Museum of Modern Art in 1935/1936. Putnam continued to show his work throughout his lifetime. An unpublished manuscript by Putnam entitled "Three Heroes I Have Known" including comments about Mark Rothko, Milton Avery, and Abe Birnbaum is housed the Archives of American Art at the Smithsonian.   ...  Displaying 750 of 754 characters.
