“Some Hard Edge Painters”

Los Angeles Art Association

An excellently assembled small survey of paintings by Florence Arnold, Max Bailey, Karl Benjamin, Lorser Feitelson, Fred Hammersley, Cliff Harmon, June Harwood, Helen Lundeberg, Thomas McCray, John McLaughlin and Eva Slater, representing some of the best “hard edge” work being produced on the West Coast. A surprising number of these pictures show the influence of the external world, and not a few are clearly interpretations of literal “subject matter.” Within the limitations set by themselves these artists display a prodigious variety of mood and character. Of particular note are oils by Feitelson, Benjamin, McLaughlin and Hammersley.
