JAMES LECHAY: Paintings
Catalogue for the 1997 PAAM exhibition.
James Lechay was a painter of figures, landscapes, cityscapes and still lifes who played a notable role in the tradition of avant-garde painting in New York and in the Midwest. An artist who defied categorization, he assimilated the precepts of modern European and American art, evolving a spare, semi-abstract style with expressionist overtones; as Lechay himself put it, he was an “abstract impressionist” who followed his own artistic agenda throughout the course of his career.
