PROVENANCE
Dr. Robert Atkins


Lawrence "Larry" Zox was an American painter and printmaker is often classified as an Abstract Expressionist, Color Field Painter and a Lyrical Abstractionist, although he did not readily use those categories for his work.

Zox was born in Des Moines, Iowa to Oscar and Mildred (née Friedman) Zox, but moved to New York City at an early age. He lived an artist's life, running in the circles of many prominent names in the art world. In his later years he relocated to his second home in Colchester, Connecticut. Zox was considered an abstract artist, but more often he described himself as a colorist.

Zox received his education at Oklahoma University and Drake University. He studied with George Grosz at the Des Moines Art Center. He was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship and received grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Foundation. He was Artist-in Residence at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, Dartmouth College, and Yale University.

His work has been exhibited in many one-person and group shows including the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo, New York; Art Institute of Chicago; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; and Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York. In his later years his work was exhibited at the Stephen Haller Gallery in New York City and Rocket Gallery, London.

He died at age sixty-nine from cancer and was survived by his second wife, the former Virginia King, his two children from his first marriage, Alexander and Melinda, a brother Alan Zox, a sister Susan Zox-Smith, and his brother-in law, the painter David R. Prentice among others.
