June Blum Black and White Paintings
This book, "June Blum Black and White Paintings, 1960's through 2010" displays the work of a unique artist and her career of creating an oeuvre unlike anyone else. The unique history of this artist is revealed through the language of art and paint.
June Blum, artist for over fifty years, former Museum curator and activist, creates black and white paintings as easily as she creates figurative works. Her works are in public as well as private collections. Her one of a kind black and white paintings drew attention in many articles for their distinct uniqueness. As Professor Cynthia Maris Dantzic's statement in the catalog "June Blum's Black and White Lines 2005" states: "For me, one test of a painter's success is the response to such questions as these: Is there anyone who paints paintings lke these? Are these works derivative of another's paintings? Do these works add something new to the painter's lexicon? Her oeuvre responds well to each of these criteria, with energy and vivacity. And so for your visual pleasure, here are the Black and White paintings of June Blum"
