Six realists of baltimore


An early 1960s group in Baltimore, it included Joseph Sheppard, John Bannon, Frank Redelius, Earl Hofmann, Thomas Rowe and Evan Keehn, all early students of Jacques Maroger. Their showings drew thousands to their downtown Baltimore gallery. Often paintings by the Six Realists were juried into annual exhibitions at The Butler Institute of American Art in Youngstown, Ohio. Most notable was the inclusion of work by Sheppard, Rowe and Miller in the 1962 Annual at The Butler Institute, [that stood] along with work of Ben Shahn and Edward Hopper." Source:
