NEW

YORK, NY.- Michael Rosenfeld Gallery presents its first solo

exhibition featuring the work of Marguerite Zorach (1887-1968) and
William
Zorach (1887-1966). On view through August 13, this exhibition consists
of
a selection of watercolors by each. The six 1915 watercolors by
Marguerite
Zorach were completed during a summer excursion in 1915 to the White
Mountains
hamlet of Randolph, New Hampshire. A noticeable feature in these works
is the
attention to detail, everything from the furniture in the rooms to the
patterning of the wallpaper and the design of the rugs. In general the
works
display the modernist conventions of simplification of form and dramatic

flattening of perspective. Later Zorach turned five of the six original
watercolors into a set of hand-watercolored transfer lithographs.
