Description

An early, somewhat abstract expressionist, painting by social commentary artist Jim Spitzer, done around 1958 in Madison, Wisconsin.

Done on a sheet of masonite Spitzer uses an underlay of black line structures, anticipating his later figurative, satirical work. This painting include gestural lines and the drip painting that Pollock had experimented with a decade before.
