Catalogue Note

Pioneering art dealer Julien Levy recalled that in the mid 1940s "I showed the later work of... Arshile Gorky, the painter now generally conceded to be the "eye-spring" of Abstract Expressionism.  André Breton was the first to write of the quality of Gorky in a preface to my first exhibition of this extraordinary painter in 1945, "The Eye-Spring".
(Julien Levy, Memoir of an Art Gallery, New York, 1977, pp. 281-282)
