Description Irving Lehman studied at the Art Students League and Coopers Union. Like many other artists of his generation, he painted for the WPA and then adopted a more abstract style after WWII.
The gouache is from his early period between his shows at the ACA Gallery and his WPA work. The Manhattan skyline become a stage setting for an interplay of color and form anticipating the more gestural abstraction of the post-WWII New York Abstract Expressionist School.
