Description: Kanemitsu belonged to what has come to be called the Second Generation of Abstract-Expressionists. In 1956, his work was included in a Whitney Annual, and in 1962, he participated in a group show at the Tanager Gallery, a Tenth Street cooperative. By 1960 he was exhibiting at galleries in New York and Los Angeles, and in 1962 his work traveled with the Museum of Modern Art exhibition Ò14 AmericansÓ. Perhaps because of his move to Los Angeles, his name remains largely absent from most histories of the New York art world in the fifties.
