James Cohan Gallery, New York Acquired from the above by the present owner in 2004
New York, James Cohan Gallery, Beatriz Milhazes: Summertime, October - December 2004
“The work of Beatriz Milhazes epitomizes this process of reinvention and emphasizes a double movement within contemporary paintings: abstraction as an activity drawing from both the visual world and experience, and hybridity as a drawing together of different sources in the creation of something new.”
Simon Wallis, Beatriz Milhazes, Bignan 2003, p. 21
