Lawrence Arts Center exhibition provides insight into career of KU professor, modernist painter Albert Bloch
The majority of the pieces in “Albert Bloch: Themes and Variations. Paintings and Watercolors from the Albert Bloch Foundation,” which opened late last month and will remain at the Arts Center until early January, had never been displayed publicly before. Most of the watercolors, Ben Ahlvers notes, had never left Bloch’s studio. Not even in the 50 years following his death. By Joanna Hlavacek
