A Painting That Was Previously Hidden Behind Gorky’s Work Was Accidentally Found

Hidden Painting Gorky’s Work

Earlier, the work of art painted by Gorky was sent out for routine conservation. All this time, the Arshile Gorky Foundation was discovering the painting of the early abstract expressionist. And as a result, a painting hidden behind a later work on paper was found.

This research brought a lot of people to art and the result truly surprised the team who opened new horizons of the painting. The work will debut during a non-selling exhibition which will take place in New York next month.

Gorky's artwork

The newly discovered work got the title Virginia Summer. It will be featured in a new catalog of the artist which will arrive later this month. The Limit painting was finished in 1947, and that period was quite productive for the artist who was making a new work almost every day. As a result, he was lack materials and started to draw atop the canvas.

Now, it can be possible that this isn’t the only work the artist painted this way. The curators of museums will continue discovering the works of one of the powerful American painters of the 20th century. He experienced the Armenian genocide which influenced his development as an artist.
