Donald Sultan's (MFA 1975) show The Disaster Paintings was reviewed by the Washington Post. On view at the Smithsonian American Art Museum through September 4, the show is a collection of paintings made during the Reagan years through 1990. Philip Kennicott writes, "Taken together, these works feel like a monumental series of history paintings, minus the particulars of history. If they are too dark and clotted to allow us to figure out what it is that menaces the world, that’s no matter." Click here to learn more about Sultan's show.
