Alissa Blumenthal: works from the 1950-1960s


In the second major stage of her career, Blumenthal began to introduce brighter colors and recognizable imagery into her compositions. Most of these paintings measure 12 x 12 inches; groups of the square canvases create long sequences suggestive of filmstrips.
