Study for a Painting. 1938, Ad Reinhardt. Cut-and-pasted papers on green paper on cardboard, 3 7/8 x 4 7/8 in., USA. "From 1936 to 1941 Reinhardt was among the relatively few abstract artists employed in the easel division... Works Progress Administration’s Federal Art Project (WPA/FAP)... paintings that resulted consisted of collage-based, solid-toned, linear, interlocking, geometric forms... in which his circular and rectilinear shapes were composed as variations on small, cut-paper collages."
