Curated by Jason Andrew, the show presents work by one of the leading members of the New York School, which also included Lee Krasner and Jackson PollockElaine and Willem de Kooning, Mark Rothko, and Schloss’s husband, Rudy Burckhardt. An expatriate of Germany, Schloss was a key player in the largely immigrant art scene. She had a broad and deep education in pan-European culture, upon which she drew for her paintings, assemblages, collages, and drawings.
