Louis Finkelstein: Painterly Observation

In another must read blog post Larry Groff pairs great images of Louis Finkelstein's paintings with writings about the artist including a conversation between Harry Naar and Finkelstein that is not to be missed. 

An excerpt: Finkelstein: "The possible variations built into the nature of painting are, in a way, parallel to the way recombining words yields so many different meanings, even whole vistas of meaning. Through the recombining of elements and relations, paintings produce in us various emotions, affects, reminiscences which we would not have without them, and these are not used up any more than poetry is used up."
