The decade of ’35-’45 was a fraught period on the world stage as well as on the brightening art stage of New York, where debates about abstraction and figuration were famously waged in downtown bars and uptown museums. Reinhardt, who studied at the National Academy of Design and the American Artists’ School and worked in the easel division of the Federal Arts Project after his 1935 graduation from Columbia University, was firmly embedded in this milieu. He was acutely aware of the scene and its players, acutely loyal to mentors (such as Carl Holty, Francis Criss, and Burgoyne Diller)Â¹ increasingly overshadowed by a new influx of European Ã©migrÃ©s, and acutely impatient to get to work. He had an active, hungry eye and even in those early years was on the defensive about its focused, discerning gaze. He had already decided that art’s apotheosis would be abstract painting, which he called the central factâ€ of the twentieth century.Â² In 1943, he declared, It is more difficult to write or talk about abstract painting than about any other painting because the content is not in a subject matter or story, but in the actual painting activity.â€Â³ Reinhardt here locates painting’s heart in the disciplined procedure of its making and, by implication, in a parallel viewing experienceÂ—both activities that require sustained and careful work. Her long list of accolades includes her famous disappearing model body painting of 2000 where it is extremely hard to identify the model in the picture.

On view by Katharina Wulff are two sparsely occupied and delicately rendered scenes, exemplifying the artist’s engagement with, and updates of, German romanticismâ€”transported to the artist’s adopted home of Morocco. Each strangely halting in their articulation, these representational works become fantastic by way of what is omitted. Giangiacomo Rossetti’sÂ Capriccio sopra la lontananza del suo fratello dilettissimoÂ (2019)â€”translates to Capriccio on the departure of a beloved brother, and originates from a seminal composition by J.S. Bach. Bach’s piece was written as his brother left for Sweden, Rossetti’s work was occasioned by his own departure from Milan. The work is sourced from his brother’s Instagram, and framed with theÂ oroboroÂ – a snake eating its own tail.
