Albert Bloch painting donated by KU alumni represents artist’s early work in Lawrence

LAWRENCE, KS, December 19, 2014 – It may be cold outside, but the Spencer Museum’s 20/21 Gallery has some added warmth with the newly acquired Albert Bloch painting Summer. The painting, donated this fall by KU alumni Dr. Eric and Michelle Voth, adds to the Spencer’s strong holdings by Bloch and represents a unique period in the artist’s work. The left half of the painting portrays a still-life of a vibrant yellow flower in a vase, while on the right half a woman and a clown share a quiet and somewhat mysterious interaction.
