Karl Benjamin Paintings from 1950–1965 - Publications - Louis Stern Fine Arts

Throughout his long and richly-productive career, Karl Benjamin has approached painting in a serial manner, producing related works which explore similar shapes, structures, and geometric configurations in various combinations of color and value.  Karl Benjamin: Paintings from 1950 - 1965 provides a selective overview of the work Benjamin produced in the richly productive period between 1951 and 1965.  While a concern for geometry and formal structure emerged during this period, Benjamin’s paintings ultimately celebrate color and the rich variety of relationships and associations color evokes. The high-spirited optimism one sees in artist’s work emerges from his conviction that there is infinite beauty, infinite variety in the universal language of color, shape and form.
