Michael Loew started his art career painting portraits and depictions of urban life. But after serving in the Navy during World War II, he lost interest in representational work and moved full-tilt to abstractionism. He then spent the next forty years teaching and painting abstract works. This picture is a rare instance of Loew working with charcoal.
Loew is a blue chip artist with superb credentials and an enduring legacy for good reason.
Loew’s work is held in the collections of the Guggenheim Museum, The Whitney Museum of American Art, Albright-Knox Art Gallery, The Philadelphia Museum of Art, and The Hirshhorn, and many others.
