About

An abstract, acrylic painting by Adolph Gottlieb. "Blue on Black" is an abstract, acrylic on paper laid on canvas painting executed in a dark palette with primary red and blue by Post War artist Adolph Gottlieb. "Blue on Black" depicts an abstracted blue flower, below a deep red circle, on a dark ground.
