Selected Works from the Collection of Mr. and Mrs. H. Gates Lloyd

Selected Works from the Collection of Mr. and Mrs. H. Gates Lloyd, installation view, Institute of Contemporary Art.

The principal characteristic of the Lloyd collection, without doubt, is its superlative quality. To this may be added a second, also exceptional characteristic, that of an integrity of stylistic focus. While international in scope, containing important pieces by Mondrian, Moore, Klee, Arp, Miró and many others, the Lloyd collection is nevertheless, in an historical sense, preeminently an index of the mainstream of American art during the past thirty years. Stylistically, it begins with the first gestures of Abstract Expressionism and continues in a direct development sequence to the color-field and reductivist idioms of the present. As is to be expected, the collection adheres to a decidedly formalist sensibility, classical in its concentration on forms and plastic substance.
