Harry Carmean and Lorser Feitelson in LA Rising show
Harry Carmean and Lorser Feitelson exhibited side by side at the LA Rising show at the Sullivan Goss Gallery in Santa Barbara (Sept. - Oct 2011), and what a sight it was! The two artists tackled similar themes with equally successful results. Feitelson is much more known to the public than Harry Carmean, but as can be seen here, Carmean holds his own when showing with Feitelson who was his close friend and contemporary for thirty years. In time, Harry Carmean will be more recognized, and like Feitelson, will be seen as one of California's best interpreters of the figure, but for the moment his work remains largely unrecognized in the fine art world. For those that would like to collect Carmean's work, it is recommended that they buy it now while it is so undervalued and because of the current buyer's market, and also because in time the prices will inevitably rise.
