The Art of Ynez Johnston

Ynez Johnston created a luminous body of artwork over the course of eight decades. Considered to be something of a prodigy, she entered the art department at the University of California Berkeley at the age of sixteen and had her first solo exhibition just six years later at the San Francisco Museum of Art. Ynez’s creative life was marked by a fluid aesthetic that explored numerous personal topographies and exotic cultural influences gleaned from her many adventurous travels throughout the world.

This retrospective exhibition features paintings, sculptures, and prints from more than six decades. Ynez Johnston (1920-2019) won numerous awards in her lifetime including the first prize at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1952, as well, her work is in the permanent collections of the Dallas Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art, New York, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, San Francisco Museum of Art, National Gallery of Art and the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington DC among many others.

This exhibition is supported by Tom d’Alessandro and Karen and Sandy Decker.
