Shifting Momentum presents the development of abstract art in Taiwan, from the eighties to today. The works in this exhibition span a wide range of techniques, styles, and intentions, involving a self-analysis that requires a balance between the rational and the intuited, connecting the artists in this frequently shifting art domain. Influenced by Western modernism, the artists address Eastern culture, philosophy and tradition on subjects like ch’i (energy flow), ink calligraphy, huxi (breathing, or to breathe), and traditional window frames. The artists' works reflect the liberal and slowly-opened state of Taiwanese society after the lifting of 38 years of martial law (1949-1987) in juxtaposition to the digitized hyper-accelerated life of today. Shifting Momentumcelebrates Asian art and encourages viewers to have a physical, prolonged encounter with works that are culturally rooted in the East. It is through close examination of these techniques and expressions that one may gradually discover a range of interpretations of the self and the core of existence.

What does it mean to adopt a new homeland, language and way of life? What kind of conditions make someone abandon their country, moving sometimes across oceans without prospects, without papers? What land will that immigrant's children and grandchildren feel to be their own? These are questions that Without Papers seeks to answer through personal narrative, sculptures and historical documents.

All of my ancestors immigrated to the United States before the first World War, before immigration papers were required. They, unlike many other Southern Italian immigrants all found their way to South Jersey. These families have called places such as Atlantic City, Egg Harbor City, and Hammonton home for over 100 years. My family is American in everything but cuisine, losing the language, religion and all cultural customs that our ancestors carried with them from Italy.

From 2005 until 2010, I lived and worked seasonally in Italy and, much like early Italian immigrants to the United States, I would travel back and forth between the two countries. When the financial crisis began to affect Italian tourism, it became hard to do my job as a tour-guide. Though I had found my dream job and the country I wanted to call home, my lack of citizenship made staying an impossibility. Having experienced the fear of deportation, as well as the desire to succeed and become accepted in my adopted home, I empathize with the plight of the immigrant, but I am fully aware of the privilege my American passport gave me compared with immigrants I met from the Middle-East, Bangladesh and Africa. As the subject of illegal immigration has become a heated issue in this country in light of the refugee crisis, I think it is all the more important to examine our own immigration history to the United States, no matter how long ago, or how legal the status.

I recently became the caretaker of my grandmother's house in Egg Harbor City. In moving to this house, I discovered documents closely tying my family to Egg Harbor City, Hammonton, and their ancestral homes in Italy. These documents, previously unknown to anyone in my family save my grandmother, tell the story of our family's immigration to the United States and give a first hand account of life as a first generation Italian immigrant in NJ. Without Papers refers to these documents that are the basis of the artworks created for the show. By exploring my family's immigrant journey from Italy to South Jersey, Without Papers is an exhibition where my familial experiences in Hammonton and Egg Harbor City will contextualize an empathic understanding of immigrants both past and present.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   - Jim Dessicino

Kevin Husta’s interest in exploring, researching, and photographing historic sites around Hammonton was sparked as a child when he took walks along an old railroad track with his grandfather. Husta focuses on some of the more iconic historic locations in Hammonton, places that give the town its character.

Stockton University’s Kramer Hall, Noyes Museum of Art, and the South Jersey Culture and History Center have collaborated on exhibitions and programs to raise awareness of South Jersey’s long-standing cultural diversity, cultivated through successive waves of immigration and migration.

Since the earliest days of European colonization within South Jersey, the area has provided homes to people of diverse religious, cultural, and ethnic backgrounds. The history is rich, engaging, and less-well-known than it might be. We hope to raise awareness within the wider community of this history of diversity along with its lasting impact on our area. Multimedia exhibitions present cultural contexts, focusing on the underlying social causes of emigration and migration such as exile and assimilation. The museum will interpret the stories of immigrant communities through paintings, works on paper, photographs, sculpture and literature. The exhibitions will contextualize an empathetic understanding of immigrants both past and present and seek to answer unresolved questions. 

This exhibition is widely collaborative, with institutions and individuals from all over the state coming together to tell their stories. The following resources and individuals were vital to the successful execution of this project; please visit their websites to learn more.

The Noyes Museum presents a collection of photographs by the  artist Constantine Gedal.

There are two elements that I employ in my imagery—human beings and one’s surroundings.

In order to construct an image, I follow the travels of a lone soul in the land of the other, registering views and moments flowing by, observing pictures seen through the mind of an intricate and elaborate structure that can’t always relate to the world around it.

Travels in the world, which is sometimes as small and narrow as a single bunker, secure and desperate; sometimes as wide as an ocean, forgiving and merciless; with layers over layers vanishing down, with the deep sky tipped off into the abyss above, where time doesn’t fight space, and choosing a direction is futile; no preparations and no second chances—everything happens here and now.

I portray moments of an object’s journey of becoming a subject against a background of vastness which is turning a subject into an object and dissolving into thin air such as a sea line disappears in the midday sunshine.
—Constantine Gedal

Kimberly Camp, Nana Wisdom


Kimberly Camp was born in 1956 in Camden, New Jersey into an artistic family. Her early life spent exploring museums and galleries with her parents and siblings had a heavy influence on her work, which often depicts family life.

Kimberly Camp began her career as an artist at the early age of 12. She set up a sidewalk exhibition displaying dolls and paintings. Since then, she has participated in over 100 solo and group exhibitions across the country, including the American Craft Museum, Smithsonian Institution, University of Michigan, Bomani Gallery, Manchester Craftsman’s Guild and many more.

In addition to her work as an artist, Camp pursued a career as president and CEO for The Barnes Foundation, as well as leadership positions for the Smithsonian Institution Experimental Gallery and the Charles Wright Museum of African American History in Detroit. Camp retired in 2012, and in 2013 opened Galerie Marie in Collingswood, New Jersey. 

Camp's work is known for creative displays of her own ideas about art in democracy, social equality and diversity.  Many of her items are priced affordably, ranging from $10 to $500, “so that everyday people can buy art.” 

I hope that viewers are able to see something of themselves and those they love in each painting, be it in the glance of an eye, the bend of a knee and an elbow, the smile on a face elated or the absence of human form where animals convey similar glances. Simply put, they serve as a reminder of the reflections of the spirit and soul.  - Kimberly Camp

Sue Eldridge Ward is a contemporary mixed media, self-taught artist. She started as a photographer, moved to ceramic sculpture, then expanded to fiber art and now works in digital print media. Her work is humanist, political, feminist and open to interpretation. She focuses on the expanding influence of media entertainment and how it confirms or detracts from philosophies of reality and fantasy.

Ward takes images from media sources: television, the internet, photographs, and digitally enhances them to create a collage, painting, or installation. She likes the slight discoloration and distortion of images found in the news and television; the abstraction is what interests her. The materials she uses are often purposefully pedestrian: computer print-outs, nail polish, and cardboard boxes.

We are drawn to drama; we love it and can’t get enough of it. In particular, we seem to orbit around love and violence. Can we have one without the other – how are they intertwined? Is violence escapable or a necessary, natural condition that we all must endure and accept? Furthermore, how can we as a people protect the fragile and finite Earth while maintaining our natural instincts for violence and greed? I am inspired by the mundane, on the side of the road, at my desk job, in the Dollar Store. Being self-taught allows me the freedom to explore my environment unencumbered by convention and history. It all works! – Sue Eldridge Ward

The Noyes Signature Artist Members Exhibition showcases the recent work of nine artists creating outstanding artwork throughout the region. The exhibition will feature works in mixed media, painting, and sculpture. From finely crafted furniture to fine oil paintings, this exhibition is an eclectic mix of work from the Noyes Museum's Signature Artists, a group pre-selected by a jury of regional arts professionals.

Highlights include Kristin Myers’ An Open Sea, a meticulously crafted line drawing, and an homage to the vastness of the ocean. Bette Blank’s I Cannot Tell a Lie… adds an element of humor as she takes on current social issues with a lighthearted touch. Eileen Kennedy’s painting, Dona Nobis Pacem, in the labor-intensive medium of egg tempera, was inspired by the pure colors and narrative style of the Renaissance masters. Ken Karlic’s spontaneous brushstrokes in Windows and a Door “find beauty in the structures and the grit of everyday life.” Marie Natale’s watercolor, Fall Snow, captures the subtleties of light and vibrant colors of the landscape. The sculptural Mesa Blanc, a finely crafted table in maple by Glen Guarino, explores the boundaries between function and aesthetics.

The Noyes Museum presents the work of two local artists, both of whom spent their lives and careers enriching the art scene of southern New Jersey. Born and educated in Philadelphia prior to relocating to the Jersey Shore later in their lives, Mili Dunn Weiss and Bernard Fineberg shared common goals. Bringing enthusiasm and the desire to nurture the arts in their communities, they exemplify the spirit of art and culture in southern New Jersey.

Fineberg’s experience was diverse, having taught art history, drawing, painting, collage, papier-mâché, and textile design. As an artist and intellectual, his approach to art-making tended to be organized conceptually. As he traveled, he carried a sketchbook with him, most often working en plein-air to create his signature watercolor landscapes.

A Philadelphia native, Mili Dunn Weiss attended the Tyler School of Art and Boston University prior to post-graduate work at the Boston Museum School. Her lifelong success in the arts was foreshadowed at this point by various accolades, including the Dean’s Award for Painting from Tyler, as well as being honored as a Tyler Fellow. 

My work always begins with an intense visual experience. Nature, with its infinite variety of colors, forms, patterns, and rhythms, is often the original stimulus. Then begins a long process, which evolves into a picture idea. I strive to achieve a sense of internal order, and yet, within that order, tension is an important factor.

Christina Massey’s work explores the boundaries of both painting and sculpture. Her work is highly intuitive, reacting to the materials and building upon them as it evolves. Artists such as John Chamberlain, Susan Bengali, El Anatsui and Lee Bontecou have influenced her work. There is a sensitivity to materials, form and process with an inspiration from textiles and re-purposed products. Her colorful, abstract, textural artworks blend and blur the lines between sculpture and painting.

Massey's process involves constant deconstruction and reconstruction. She will cut and tear pieces of the canvases apart, removing them from their stretcher bars and reusing parts of one to begin another. Some of the canvases have been re-purposed many times over. In this way, her body of work is a conversation with itself - a visual dialogue chronicling her creative endeavors. 

"I’ll combine new canvas and other elements as needed for the current work, sometimes leaving the surface of the old painting as it once was, sometimes adding more paint on top of it, but still leaving it identifiable as the previous artwork. It’s a process of constantly constructing and deconstructing, always building upon the old for the new." - Christina Massey

Maria Yony Lopez Marulanda's identity as an intensely social being fuels her work, as she strives to understand the experiences of mankind. Marulanda's desire to uncover the varied motivations of Man is present throughout this series, which seeks to comprehend our tendencies towards chaos and self-destruction. Through the process of creating these pieces, she meticulously examines our inability to learn from our mistakes, resulting in irreversible consequences affecting all living beings, as well as the Earth we inhabit.

.....we should ask ourselves about all of our achievements, throughout human history, of which we are responsible for having inflicted so much pain and destruction, in an inhuman way upon our only Home which is Earth and to our fellow beings; we are God's greatest creation, and as superior beings of nature, we should comport ourselves as such.  - Maria Yony Lopez Marulanda

Despite this troubling propensity towards barbarism and recklessness, Marulanda asserts that bold, united action, could halt this destruction once and for all. If we choose not to act in a way worthy of our status as "superior" beings, she wonders, "...would God hesitate to annihilate the maelstorm which his own children have caused?" With the willingness to cleanse the universe of iniquity, she theorizes, comes the willingness to remove all traces of us from the Earth we are so intent on destroying.

There are times in our lives when the floor drops unexpectedly from under out feet and propels us on a dark journey. This human condition of loss often feels surreal and affects each of us in profound and unexpected ways. This is a painful process, as we descend into denial, anger, negotiation and despair. We find ourselves adrift, our compasses malfunction, and we are left disoriented and despondent. Finally, there is acquiescence, the inflection point where healing commences. 

This exhibition is an emotional recollection of my own transformation, which has taken me from the abyss to a place where potential is limitless. I have chosen to use fiber as my medium ,as it brings an unthreatening quality to this provocative and sometimes uncomfortable subject. Emerging from the darkness has helped me to see the possibilities that can only be discovered through the path of deconstruction and reconstruction.

Michael Pascucci works in a figurative abstract style that emphasizes visual metaphors relating to the human condition. He believes that his sculptures are essentially romantic because they metaphorically connect to core feelings and thus enhance an awareness of self.

There are times Art triggers our imagination and becomes a means for transcendental feelings about our universal connectedness. As a sculptor, I am inspired by the wonder and awe of how shapes and forms are assembled and integrated into the incredible well-structured and beautiful designs that we find in Nature. I endeavor to create objects that are beautiful and that appeal to our innate sense of beauty. Ultimately, we learn or feel from the works that there is more about being human than meets the eye.

As a participant on the Stockton Study Tour to the Netherlands and France in March 2017, Casey had the unique opportunity to travel with three survivors who were hidden children during the Holocaust. She traced the life stories of these survivors by visiting cities and locations that played a critical role in their survival. For some, their story had been shared many times with students of the Holocaust and genocide. For others, this was the first time they exposed themselves to the emotion of returning to what they once called home. Her photography tells their stories and provides testament to their resilience and strength.

Cuff was selected by the Stockton Board of Trustees Fellowship for the Distinguished Students program. This initiative, established in 1986, supports student-led projects of undergraduate research or creative work in keeping with the educational philosophy and mission of Stockton University. Cuff used this opportunity to create Memories Left in our Hands, in an effort to capture the raw emotion of what it means to confront the realities of one’s past. With her project, she aims to examine the ways that human beings are capable of treating one another after establishing them as the “other”. Her Fellowship work is a testament not only to the amazing resiliency of human beings faced with unimaginable horrors, but also to the dark past we must continue to recollect and progress from.

"As our community of living Holocaust survivors is rapidly fading away, it has become increasingly important for us to continue their stories. In Western Europe, Maud Dahme, Leo Ullman, and Dan Kochavi left their memories of the Holocaust in my hands. Through these photographs, I leave them in yours."

Jacob Wolos is an artist obsessed with the impossible task of instilling motion into static media. Coming from a background in both musical composition and sculpture, his current body of work explores human gesture and our interaction with materials as the primary focus of his compositions.

Wolos' work is performative in nature, using the gallery space as an "open studio". He experiments with fabric dipped in plaster as a record of his movement and influence on the fabric. When it dries, it keeps its shape and defies gravity. He then drips dyes and ink, later bringing in dancers to choreograph a performance with the pieces.

Midway this life we're bound upon,

I woke to find myself in a dark wood,
where the right road was wholly lost and gone -

Dante Alighieri, The Divine Comedy

A Dark Wood explores the theme of being lost in the darkness of our fears, doubts and negativity. Dante Alighieri, the 14th century Italian poet, began The Divine Comedy with a character who has lost his way in "a dark wood." There are many aspects of the dark wood and the artists presented in this exhibition interpret the richness of the concept through a range of mediums and methods.

In the photo series That Shadow My Likeness, I present my subjects, Alexandria and Melissa, in harmony with and in contrast to the natural landscapes surrounding them. From dappled light to iconic palm trees, rivers and verdant terrain, the characteristics of the scenes underscore the meaning of the figures in each piece. Through diptychs, triptychs, groupings of five images and a selection of single images, I compose a non-linear narrative that forms constructs of black female beauty, femininity, and identity. In the juxtaposition of the images of these two women and their environments, I create a third space that suggests my own subjectivity as a black female artist, in between these constructs of identity and place. I borrowed the titles of the series and individual artworks from poems by Walt Whitman. I use these titles to emphasize the poeticism of the work and to suggest how my "likeness," my persona, is a key dimension of the form and content of the work.

Grand Vista highlights recent work by Wes Sherman, Gary Stephan, Ilse Murdock, Judy Simonian and Aaron Williams. Guest-curated by native New Jersey artists Danielle Wolfrum and Wes Sherman, the artwork investigates landscape painting as an enduring theme in genre painting as it enters the twenty-first century. 

The five artists in this exhibition approach the subject with distinct perspectives. Aaron Williams manipulates mass reproductions of iconic natural features, negotiating and reshaping the relationship the viewer holds with these famous places. Gary Stephan’s geometrically precise brushstrokes belie the organic inspiration behind his paintings, redesigning the landscape along a more industrial bent. Judy Simonian uses landscape as a vehicle for expression, carrying on themes of disorientation and hope from her larger body of work. Conversely, Ilse Murdock paints within nature in order to directly situate herself and her audience as part and parcel of the larger natural world, and to indelibly tie the preservation of nature to her own artistic process. Lastly, artist and curator of the exhibition Wes Sherman’s works adhere the closest to the landscape genre, with impressionistic directionality to guide the viewer along the same paths Sherman traveled when he took in the vista himself.

"Painting has become a way to express my inner feelings with shapes, lines, and color. I find as much interest in abstract painting as I do in drawing the human form. What remains constant is the attempt to master illusion without making paintings that are realistic to the human eye, and to feel an emotion, whether it be joyous or somber. Because in a world full of confusion and chaos, there is still beauty. I want my art to speak about life in a modern aesthetic way that will allow the viewer the freedom to come to their own conclusions. For modern art must speak to the times from the depths of the artist’s soul".

With wood engravings by Michael McGarvey and poems by Peter E. Murphy, Atlantic City Lives explores the stories of the people of  “America's Favorite Playground” during and after its gambling heyday. 

Michael McGarvey, Flying Man, wood engraving

Each of the paintings is based on one of the stages in the archetypal hero myth outline in Joseph Campbell's, The Hero with a Thousand Faces.  The series deals with the transformative journey of the creative spirit. These themes emerged in the engravings for Atlantic City Lives, many years later.

Peter E. Murphy was born in Wales and grew up in New York City where he operated heavy equipment, managed a nightclub and drove a cab. He is the author of seven books and chapbooks including Stubborn Child, a finalist for the Paterson Poetry Prize. Murphy has received awards and fellowships from The Millay Colony for the Arts, The Atlantic Center for the Arts, Yaddo, The Folger Shakespeare Library, the White House Commission on Presidential Scholars and the New Jersey Council on the Arts. Retired from Atlantic City High School, he continues to teach creative writing at Stockton University. He is also the founder of Murphy Writing of Stockton University which offers the Winter Poetry & Prose GetawayInservice Solutions Professional Development and other programs for poets, writers and teachers.

Michael McGarvey received his MFA from Temple University's Tyler School of Art, and is a professor of art at Stockton University teaching illustration, graphic design, and computer animation. He has exhibited worldwide, including his extensive work with the Wood Engravers' Network.

George Kordis, Saint Makarios Notaras

This exhibition is presented in collaboration with the Interdisciplinary Center for Hellenic Studies at Stockton University, and co-curated by Dr. Amy Papalexandrou, Professor of Byzantine Art at Stockton. The body of work presented here examines creative ways of continuing the Byzantine tradition while enriching it with contemporary art elements. From powerful images capturing the Greek Revolution of 1821, to fine detailed contemporary drawings, portraits of Byzantine personalities, and Byzantine portable icons, Kordis’ philosophy is evident throughout all of his work. He uses the Byzantine system in combination with elements from modern artistic movements. In this way, he has shaped a personal painting language that is traditional and contemporary at the same time, believing that it can express the contemporary person with his or her needs and concerns.

For Kordis, painting is not just a private and personal activity. As in the Byzantine tradition, when a painter works, he tries to unify the world. Through the use of color, line and rhythm Kordis composes forms and faces, not as an exact resemblance to natural forms, but rather as an ideal vision. Through his paintings, alive with rhythm and light, his radiant images establish a dialogue between the image and the beholder.

Why represent a building abstractly? Concept and meaning of schematized space are explored by integrating them with the space until interpretation and subject are inseparable. The mediated experience of the structure becomes part of the structure itself. This selection of works from the Noyes Permanent Collection will explore constructed space as a subject for figurative art and the impermanent perception of permanent structures.

 Joe Lugara, Untitled, Digital mixed media

Joe Lugara, Untitled, Digital mixed media


  • January 9 - March 11, 2018

Joe Lugara took up oil painting at the age of 11 after his father discarded it as a hobby. A film enthusiast and former film student, he made his first paintings by copying the covers of a favorite childhood fan magazine devoted to horror movies. An interest in monster faces (“human faces stretched to emotional extremes”) combined with two decades of fiction writing resulted in a long period of painting imaginary portraits, or “fictional biographies,” which eventually gave way to abstracted, frequently ominous images containing bastardized natural forms and inexplicable phenomena. It was in the early 2010s that Mr. Lugara began creating abstracted digital images.

His paintings and works on paper have appeared in more than 40 exhibitions, including the New Jersey State Museum; Johnson & Johnson World Headquarters Gallery (as part of that company’s “New Jersey Artists” series); Visual Arts Center of New Jersey; Curious Matter (Jersey City); Banana Factory Arts Center (Bethlehem, Pa.); and across New York City.

My digital work, like my paintings, conveys the opinion that happenstance, in the infinity of space or on the scale of a single cell, is the boss, the Big Boss. The natural wonders at which we marvel are rife with unseen perils. We can’t always read nature’s true disposition, and certainly not by taking a simple look. The shapes in my work should cause the viewer to ask: “If those things were real, would I risk touching them?” - Joe Lugara


 Hak Vogrin

Hak Vogrin

  • 10.20.17 - 1.14.18
  • Location: Noyes Gallery at The Claridge, Atlantic City

The Noyes Museum presents a selection of works from its permanent collection. Featuring pieces by Hak Vogrin, Hulda Robbins, Mili Dunn Weiss, and Fred Noyes, the exhibition comprises a diverse and intriguing selection of paintings and drawings.

A contemporary of the neo-expressionist movement, Vogrin’s paintings sharply criticize issues facing American society. The evolution of Vogrin’s work includes delicate, thoughtful drawings and ironic cartoons as well as expressive paintings. After moving to a log cabin in the New Jersey Pine Barrens, Vogrin’s focus shifted to weightier social commentary and a bolder style. He produced paintings that comment upon everything from American involvement in third-world countries and consumerist America, to local problems such as the development of the Pine Barrens.

Hulda Robbins studied at the Barnes Foundation and later moved to New York City, where she worked as a prolific printmaker through the 1960s. She would often visit her family’s home at the Jersey Shore, and in 1963 she moved there. The shore provided many of the subjects that she would begin to capture in her large expressive oil paintings. 

Dunn Weiss taught painting and related media for over thirty-five years, and lectured widely on children’s art. She is best known for her course Looking at Art, which used works in museums and collections across the Philadelphia area for interactive study. Dunn Weiss' dedication to the arts carried her and her work to museums and galleries worldwide. She exhibited in England, France, and China as well as many U.S. museums, including the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts of Boston, and the National Academy of Design.

Anthony Rusisill ducks.jpg

Anthony J. Rudisill is a self-taught artist with an abiding love of nature and art. Upon these two loves, Anthony J. Rudisill has built his entire life’s work, garnering local, national, and international recognition for his painting and carving. He is adept at portraying the abundant wildlife indigenous to the coastal marshes of southern New Jersey and the natural landscapes of the United States.

As a young boy, Rudisill made field sketches of birds. After moving from Haverford, Pennsylvania to the shore, his father introduced him to Fred Noyes, who later founded the Noyes Museum of Art. He arranged for him to take art lessons from Noyes. However, Rudisill got restless, abandoned his art lessons, and instead took to the plentiful marshes of South Jersey to explore in his boat. Later, he began working as a commercial artist, illustrating model airplane boxes, postcards of hotels and motels, and other a variety of work. In his spare time, he made wildlife paintings and, subsequently, began creating detailed bird carvings. The carvings won him “Best in the World” in 1978 and 1983. Rudisill currently lives and works in South Jersey.

Advancements in digital imaging techniques have afforded me the tools and freedom to explore new directions in my artistic presentations. Sharing my vision and interpretation of a subject has always been a pleasure for me. Using archival inks, conservation grade papers, and matting, I present each image to be enjoyed for many years. Whether it is a realistic image or a hyper-realistic interpretation, my goal is to cause the viewer to stop, if only for a moment, to reflect or have an emotional response. If I can achieve that, I will be content in having realized my goal. - David Woeller

This collection of paintings was completed over a ten year period and explores the concepts,  theories and feelings that surround Lou Storey in his work as a psychotherapist and as a social worker. 

I have always used the making of art as a kind of personal journal, a way to reflect upon all the various components of the life I am living. For the maker of art as well as the viewer, art can provide a moment of self-reflection, can provoke a memory, can inspire a myriad of emotions, and can bring a sense of joy and wonder. - Lou Storey

Attilio Sinagra

Born and raised in Atlantic City, esteemed international painter Attilio Sinagra used his technically accomplished style to explore the effects of commercial development on the community of Atlantic City. Sinagra was born to Italian immigrant parents in Atlantic City in 1916. After developing his style abroad, he returned to his hometown to paint a city barely recognizable as the same one he left. His meticulous realism went hand in hand with his reverence for architecture, generating dynamic compositions that evoke a city in the throes of change.
