Catalogue Note

After serving in World War I, Graham came to New York, where he studied at the Art Student’s League, befriending the likes of Adolf Gottlieb, Barnett Newman and Alexander Calder. Like Jackson Pollock, Graham was interested in Mysticism, as well as Freudian and Jungian psychology, which reveals itself in the current work. His work can be found in many permanent collections, including the Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Whitney Museum of American Art.
