Unicorn Series
The Four Seasons Restaurant
99 East 52nd Street, NYC

Woodward Gallery is proud to present Red Grooms, The Unicorn Series in the Pool Room at The Four Seasons Restaurant.

American Artist Red Grooms (b. 1937) is best known for his colorful Pop Art constructions depicting frenetic scenes of modern urban life. In this body of work, Grooms has reinterpreted the iconography of the Metropolitan Museum’s medieval Unicorn Tapestries. Jonathan Gilmore, Art in America wrote,

“(The Unicorn series is a) …carnivalesque narrative that relates the hunt for the unicorn, its corpse being carried triumphantly into town and its eventual resurrection in a utopian setting, happily domesticated among tiny peasants…. these magnificent paintings, which are so vividly brushed and so jam-packed with figures, animals, foliage and pattern that they rival the actual tapestries in texture and decorative richness…”

Red Grooms’ work has been exhibited in galleries across the United States, as well as Europe, and Japan. His art is included in collections of thirty-nine museums, including the Art Institute of Chicago, The Museum of Modern Art (MOMA), The Whitney Museum of American Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Fine Art (Met), Cleveland Museum of Art, The Carnegie Museum of Art, The Knoxville Museum of Art, and the Cheekwood Botanical Garden and Museum of Art.
Grooms was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award by the National Academy of Design in 2003.
