ALFRED JENSEN FIFTY YEARS AGO TODAY


Alfred Jensen, My Oneness, A Universe of Colours, 1957

This Alfred Jensen is one of four included in A Point in Space Is a Place for an Argument , at Zwirner, along with the Overstreet posted below. It's signed and dated on the front, Alfred Jensen July 20 1957... fifty years ago today. If I was in NYC today I would go to Zwirner and stare hard at the center of that painting... try to jump through space and time... until I self-integrate.
