Milton Avery is an American painter of the Modern Art paintings. He was born in New York and studied at the Connecticut League of Art.
Until he was discovered by Roy Neuberger, Milton Avery was living in relative obscurity as a factory worker. Neuberger saw his work and purchased over 100 hundred of his paintings which he either donated or loaned to Museums all over the world. With such immediate high-profile exposure, he quickly became a highly respected and successful artist.
Milton Avery's landscape paintings and seascape art of the early 1920s use broad swathes of color to create a stylized form. He spent some 50 years of his life painting, sometimes creating as many as 5 or 6 oil paintings in a single day. He was a prolific artist, and today many of his paintings are either in unknown locations or undocumented.
Milton Avery was associated with Mark Rothko, Adolph Gottlieb, and Barnett Newman and was also a close friend of Marsden Hartley. Avery is now acclaimed as one of the 20th Century's most influential artists, with many of his famous oil paintings used to create California Style decoration.
