The cool foreground of this pastel abstract landscape is balanced by the warm colors the artist applied to the background. The work’s composition fills the frame, and becomes more intriguing with each glance. This piece was originally displayed at the Hicks Street Gallery in Brooklyn, which was open c. 1958-1970. Contemporaries of the artist would have included the New York School, the group of American and European artists working in mid-century New York creating what is broadly referred to as “abstract expressionism.”
