San Francisco

Robert Arnold

Howland Gallery

Mr. Arnold’s preface to his own exhibition is interesting because it contains a remark quite relevant to his situation. “I’m an isolationist because my paint­ing leaves me no time for discussion with other artists and I don’t want to be influenced by their work.” Mr. Ar­nold has succeeded; his work should not be judged alongside that of artists who are involved in the problems that they do tend to discuss, quite passion­ately, with one-another.
