A GOOD AUTUMN FOR FINE ABSTRACTION

This has been a good autumn in New York for fine abstraction. As a result, I am able to present my second set of multi-image entries since Labor Day, again all celebrating shows of fine abstract art. All but one of this latest crop close before Christmas, and I have taken up too much time running around to look at them, so I don’t have the additional time needed to discuss them at length. Therefore I shall below illustrate and discuss as briefly as possible five shows that you might really want to look at for yourselves: those with art by Stuart Davis, Al Loving, Walter Darby Bannard, Morris Louis & Jules Olitski. In addition, I shall comment upon two lesser solo shows: of abstract work by Mary Weatherford & Elizabeth Neel, a show of representational painting by Walton Ford, and the mix of abstract & figurative work in a group show called “The Joy of Color.”
