New York Times Review of the exhibition


6 April 1947

BY CONTEMPORARIES; Big Pictures at Museum of Modern Art -- The Abstract Annual -- Juan Gris

By Edward Alden JEWELL

WE have had shows restricted to small paintings, but save for exhibitions of actual murals, I do not recall one, prior to last week's opening at the Museum of Modern Art, that was specifically confined to paintings the smallest of which must be "over six feet long."
