Fritz Bultman: The Missing Irascible
Closing this Saturday, May 18th

"Flames and sky (red and blue) were themes Bultman borrowed from nature and they informed his most signature works including ‘Rosa Park’ (1958) (named after a park in New Orleans, not the civil rights activist), which is the most impressive painting at Edelman. The work has all the guts and squall found in all great painting of the period, with a surface that’s patched and rehashed by a balance of conscious choice and accident."
