His life

«Congdon’s subjects are exclusively the townscape and houses, and he owes to the example of Klee his willingness to accept the monotony of design involved by these. But though the design itself may be monotonous, the effect is not. We have already seen this kind of repetitious, all-over composition, without beginning, middle, or end, in analytical cubism and in the recent work of such painters as Mark Tobey, Jackson Pollock, Janet Sobel, […] One likes Congdon’s painting and feels, particularly in its color, the presence of a real painterly emotion […] I am eager to see what Congdon does next.
