This exhibition focuses on the abstract paintings made by Janet Sobel (1893-1968) during the 1940s when her short-lived but meteoric career began. Acclaimed for her skillful use of color and densely layered compositions that spilled to the edges of the support, Sobel pioneered what became known as “all-over” abstraction.
