George L.K. Morris was one of the earliest American proponents of fully abstract art. Morris was among the painters dubbed the Park Avenue Cubists, so named for their mix of high society and vanguard aesthetics. Charles Green Shaw, Albert Gallatin, and Morris and his wife, Suzy Frelinghuysen, worked in a Cubist vein in the 1930s, a decade in which Regionalism was heralded but abstraction, especially in the hands of the independently wealthy, seemed dangerous and decadent. Morris worked tirelessly as an advocate for abstract art, launching the career of a young Clement Greenberg while curating Gallatin’s Gallery of Living Art and funding the Partisan Review.
