Earlier this year, we covered an exhibition by the Michael Rosenfeld Gallery in New York here on our blog because it featured the early work of some Rosenwald fellows. Their current exhibition, “Abstract Expressionism, In Context: Seymour Lipton,” shows Lipton’s sculptures in the context of his contemporaries, including two Rosenwald fellows: Charles Alston and Hale Woodruff.
Both Alston and Woodruff received consecutive Rosenwald fellowships in the early 1940s; Alston in 1940 and 1941 and Woodruff in 1943 and 1944. The Rosenfeld Gallery has once again graciously posted high quality images of the works in the exhibition on their website, so make sure to check out this oil painting by Alston, painted during his second Rosenwald fellowship, and this untitled watercolor by Woodruff from the year after his second Rosenwald grant.
“Abstract Expressionism, In Context” will be on display at the Michael Rosenfeld Gallery until August 2nd.
