Artist Milton Avery (1885-1965)

Artist Milton Avery was an American born artist whose first solo exhibition was in 1944. Shown and collected worldwide, Mr. Avery was elected a fellow of the American Academy of Arts & Sciences in 1963. One of his best known works was his “Green Sea”, painted with oils on canvas.

Art critic Hilton Kramer described Mr. Avery as “…without question our greatest colorist…Among his European contemporaries, only Matisse…produced a greater achievement in this respect.”

Nappy Time (shown above) was painted with a Full Sail LTD limited edition lager from Full Sail Brewing Company in Hood River, Oregon.
