Commentary
The watercolor "Untitled (Abstraction)", ca. 1918, reflects Walkowitz' lyric, fluid use of abstraction. The palette of primary and secondary colors, as well as the freedom of movement in the composition, were inspired by the works of Kandinsky and Delaunay. Such forms evolved from semi-abstract figure studies and were first painted as early as 1918.
