Anne Truitt: White Paintings includes seven paintings made between 1973 and 1999. Each painting consists of a rectangular canvas covered with a uniformly painted white ground on which the artist sparingly applied a few crisp graphite lines and occasionally some additional strokes of pure titanium white. Truitt began the white paintings in 1973, calling the series Arundel after the county in Maryland, near where she grew up. This exhibition is the first to solely focus on this singular body of work since 1975, when the Baltimore Museum of Art organized “Anne Truitt: White Paintings,” from which the current show takes its title.
