Artistic Focus One of Southern California’s most influential pioneers of Modern Art and a pivotal figure in the development of American abstract painting in the mid-20th Century, Lorser Feitelson’s works grafted neoclassicism onto the metaphysical element seen in paintings of de Chirico. He often worked in a pale, cool palette, creating a calm, contemplative effect that sought a reasoned response in those viewing his works.
• Lorser Feitelson became intrigued by the burgeoning
Modern Art movement during a 1913 visit to the New York Armory Show.
