Copley’s early career was one of a self-taught outsider working in Paris, where, under the influence of Surrealism, he developed a unique personal iconography. This “private mythology,” as he would call it, explored sexual politics and his culturally repressive upbringing. Copley’s eccentric style and his humorous, amatory themes led to commercial success and exhibitions throughout Europe in the 1950s, and he returned to the US in 1963. The New York Years acts as a comprehensive look at his painting during the next three decades in New York City, tracing this pivotal period through key paintings from multiple series and a corresponding presentation of photographic, publishing, and research materials drawn from the archives of the William N. Copley Estate. Read more here
