About

Like many AbEx painters of his era, Wall first painted in a WPA, or Social Realist Style, but this changed in the mid-1950s and he gained early prominence as an Abstract Expressionist painter. He exhibited regularly at the Betty Parsons Gallery, known for its early promotion of Abstract Expressionism, and garnered strong critical acclaim. Bennett Schiff (prominent Arts writer for the New York Post) reviewed his first one man show at the Betty Parsons and wrote: “Wall is controlled by a sense of entirely balanced taste. He is free. His work moves rhythmically; it takes precipitous directions; plunges, pitches, and flows, but it stops at the right time and the effect is maintained. His color, which is thinly applied and imaginative in both tonality and combination, is entirely seductive and pleasurable, and he knows how to use black and give his work structure, sustenance and color. There is an airy grace in this work, but there is an identifying substance behind it. Wall is comparatively new on the scene. He is a welcome addition." All of these paintings were exhibited at Betty Parsons and painted between 1955-1960.
