Longtime readers may recall my evolving ideas about the paIntings of Ab-Exer Adolph Gottlieb (b. 1903, New York City), and this summer there’s another opportunity to see his work in “Image and Abstraction,” the star-studded, multi-generational group show at Pace. Here are a few Gottlieb images I downloaded from their website. Is his work, given its clunkiness, a forerunner to Provisional Painting and Casualism?
