Washington Art -- from the late artist Benjamin Abramowitz, who had a distinguished 70 year career from the WPA in NYC to the Corcoran, Phillips, National Gallery, Jefferson Place -- and many many more. Contemporary and colleague of Louis, Davis, Perlmutter, Mehring, Gilliam, Krebs and many more, and singled out by Walter Hopps as a visionary pioneer in the color field in Washington DC. Thanks Chan Chao for a gorgeous reproduction of this 1970's painting.
