The BAMPFA exhibition surveys Howard's artistic trajectory with key examples from each decade of his career. Through approximately seventy-five drawings and paintings, Charles Howard: A Margin of Chaos demonstrates the exceptional nature of this underrecognized artist's work.
Charles Houghton Howard was an under-recognized artist whose works traverse figurative, surrealist and abstract movements from the early- to mid-20th century, with roots in New York, London and the San Francisco Bay Area. His father was John Galen Howard, the supervising architect of UC Berkeley. This exhibition presents some 75 drawings and paintings.
