Spring will be so welcome this year. To celebrate we’ve looked to Andrée Ruellan’s Spring on Bleecker Street, 1938, as well as bright abstractions such as Worden Day’s Prismatic Presences, 1956, Toshiko Uchima’s Sweet Melody at the Sea Shore, 1973 (a collage with a remnant of one of her husband Ansei’s woodcuts), and Hugh Mesibov’s Space & Light, 1953.

There’s also flora and fauna: Peggy Bacon’s, rare Florida scene in The Lord of Creation, 1951, Dorothy Browdy Kushner’s Waltz of the Flowers, 1954, and Virginia Bill’s Seals in Central Park, 1940. And kicking-up-of-heels too -- in the pavilion in Angelo Pinto’s Amusement Park, 1931.

But an extremely scarce lithograph by The Loft Generation author/artist, Edith Schloss, The Children’s Crusade, To Bert Brecht, 1942, and Karl Schrag’s Rain and the Sea, 1946, remind us of troubling times.
