Lot Essay

"Painting is made from inside out. I think of painting as possessed by a structure--i.e., shape and size, support and edge-but a structure born of the flow of color feeling. Color in color is felt at any and every place of the pictorial organization; in its immediacy--its particularity. Color must be felt throughout" (J. Olitski, quote in K. Moffet,Jules Olitski, New York, 1981, p. 214).
