TWO WHOSE MESSAGES ARE OBSCURE; The Museum of Modern Art Puts on Retrospective Exhibitions Of the Work of Tchelitchew and the Late John Flannagan

By Edward Alden JEWELL

TWO synchronously arranged one-man shows at the Museum of Modert Art, which opened last week, permit us to survey, retrospectively, the achievement of a painter and of a sculptor. It is achievement that, in the instance of Pavel Tchelitchew, ranges from 1925 to the present year, and that, with respect to John B. Flannagan, represents all that there will be, for the American sculptor died, a suicide, last January.
