Joseph Goldyne Bio

Joseph Goldyne earned a BA in Art History from UC Berkeley before completing his MD at UC San Francisco and his MFA at Harvard University. He has devoted himself to the art world since his twenties, painting exhibitions for galleries like Braunstein Quay and John Berggruen and advising the Fine Arts Museums Collections Committee for over 30 years. This is his first solo exhibition in seven years, when he started working on these new waterfall paintings. Joseph’s work is held in the permanent collections of institutions like the Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, the Minneapolis Institute of Fine Art, and the Whitney Museum of American Art, among many others.
