Carol Summers

Carol Summers is renowned for his intensely vivid colors and his revolutionary woodblock techniques. Summers’ radical sense of design is integral in creating his loose, dreamy landscapes and graphic still life images. Summers’ work has been widely collected for decades and is held in the following museum collections: The Art Institute of Chicago; Biblioteque National, Paris; Brooklyn Museum of Fine Arts, Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington; Los Angeles County Museum; Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, New York; The National Museum of Art, Washington; and the Seattle Art Museum.
