AHF Collection: Among Friends - Programs - Al Held Foundation

The exhibition “Among Friends” offered the chance to study of Held's paintings in conversation with works by artist friends that he and his wife Sylvia Stone collected over the years. These included Alex Katz, Philip Pearlstein, Sam Francis, Ronald Bladen, and George Sugarman, among others. As a young and mid-career artist, Held developed important dialogues with other artists, and we can see how his style evolved along with his peers in New York. "Among Friends" considered the importance of artistic friendships through the lens of one artist’s personal art collection.
