Catalogue Note

"The later paintings are continuous with the field paintings but move from the monumental to the lyrical. The scale of the field does not diminish in the 70s, but the forms in the field are often smaller in relation to the whole than before. They convey an impression of mobility, as they flare and fade. Gottlieb's color was always varied and subtle apart from his black-and-red paintings, but it is freshly delicate in the late work."
