Estate of Norman W. Lewis 2017.2



Lewis’s Winter Branches #4 belongs to a series of drawings based upon black-and-white photographs of barren trees against the cloudless sky. The Harlem-based artist’s interest in landscape was further fueled by his study of Chinese painting, whose influences are readily seen in the spare calligraphic lines and brushwork characterizing this series.
