Elias Friedensohn

Feingarten Galleries

Friedensohn’s pictures are large, predominantly of the figure, and monochromatic. His figures are usually male, muscular, vacuous, and possibly come from the Lonely Crowd, as seen one by one. Their presence, perceived out of cloud-like masses of freely applied paint, is unobtrusive, only slightly disconcerting, and one wonders why Friedensohn bothered with them in the first place. An art instructor at Queens College, he has had seven one-man shows.
