Beauford at the Armory Show 2012

The Armory Show was held from March 8-11, 2012 at Piers 92 and 94 in Manhattan. Pier 92 was dedicated to international dealers specializing in historically significant Modern and contemporary art. The Michael Rosenfeld Gallery had exhibit space at Pier 92 and showed three of Beauford's paintings among the works of forty artists:

All of these works were produced during Beauford's Paris years, when he lived in the suburban town of Clamart. During the summer of 1958, he began using color in his paintings to convey the tumult of his inner life - to embrace and confront it as opposed to repelling it through painting as he had done previously. By the end of the year, he was preparing for two group shows to be held in 1959.
