Paul Behnke photoblogs a visit to the recent exhibition George McNeil at Ameringer McEnery Yohe, New York.

Behnke's photos, including closeups, portray the tactility and varied touch in McNeil's paintings.  The gallery notes that the works on view were from "1957 and 1969. This period demonstrates an important transitional period for McNeil from his signature multi layered abstractions to a growing interest in figurative associations."
