This intimate collage was done in 1957, the same year that art critic Clement Greenberg visited some of the studios of the Painters Eleven. The blocks of bright hues and abstract floating shapes that are characteristic of Bush’s large-scale works are present in this collage, and the manner in which the paper is torn emulates his signature bold brushstrokes. This work will be included in the forthcoming Jack Bush Paintings: A Catalogue Raisonné by art historian, curator, and Director of the Jack Bush Catalogue Raisonné, Dr. Sarah Stanners.
