Label Text:
Mark Baum pursued figurative art until the 1960s. Although he attended art school, he was largely self-taught. This painting demonstrates the artist’s primitivist style and his independence from fashions. Its subject ties in with the nineteenth-century tradition of landscape painting, which, as Rolston Holmes III explains, “emphasized the patterned shapes made by the various items of a landscape, the spatial relationships, near and far, the relative intensity of differing elements in the scene.”
