about the book

In 1946, the painter Arshile Gorky spent the summer at Crooked Run Farm, a country estate in Lincoln, Virginia. In this time, he drew feverishly, producing almost 300 drawings. These drawings included a study for what is now considered one of his most remarkable paintings, The Limit (1947), a work that he described as the outcome of being “so lonely, exasperated, and how to paint such empty space—so empty it‘s the limit.”

The Artist

Arshile Gorky

Arshile Gorky was born an ethnic Armenian in Ottoman Anatolia in c.1904. Fleeing the genocide that claimed the life of his mother, he emigrated to the United States as a teenage refugee in 1920. After five years with relatives in Massachusetts, Gorky moved to New York and changed his name in honor of the celebrated Russian poet. Refusing all categories, whether artistic or political, as necessarily reductive, Gorky forsook assimilation in favor of celebrating his otherness, becoming a central figure of the cultural milieu of a city on the brink of Modernism.
