Milton Avery was a painter who created work from the 1920's until the early 1960's. His work is not entirely considered mondernist in style but acts as a sort of intermediary between modernsim and abstract expressionism. Avery's aim to reduce the picture plane to solid forms of color while still retaining the represented objects volume and perspective influenced future artists Mark Rothko and Adolph Gottlieb and colorfeild painting.
The museum had a pretty nice selection of Avery's work, with paintings and sketches taking up 4 rooms in the museum. Here's a few pictures I snapped of works that I particularly liked:
