That Which I Should Have Done I Did Not Do (The Door) (1931-41)
Into the World There Came a Soul Called Ida (1929-30) [note the "floating" handkerchief]
Three pieces by Ivan Albright, one of my favorite painters, whose "The Door" (above) is one of my very favorite paintings. Amazing, humbling stuff, in my opinion. Never had the privilege of seeing any in person, unfortunately. I suppose you can see the influence here on people like Joe Coleman (who I love) but Albright's work has its own sort of mystical ambiguity which I find really compelling and much more frightening than something like Coleman's murderous hobos or whatever. But that's probably not a sensible comparison... Any way, good stuff, skill beyond any normal human measure as far as I'm concerned.
