Description: Lillian Orlowsky knew she had lived through a revolutionary period in American art. As she put it: "I was fortunate to have taken part in one of the most important periods of art in this century. The 1930's through the 1950's saw a cultural upheaval where diverse concepts in painting went from one extreme to another: from realism to abstraction." In studying with Hofmann, she moved, as she said, "From unconscious cubism to an understanding of the picture plane. He made me realize that you don't imitate nature," but recreate it.
